Be an Urban Farmer for the Day (age 10+) *Hands On*
Albina Cooperative Garden's mission is to grow food to share with coop members, community members, and especially those in need. Also to use the farm to educate schools and others about the importance of growing healthy food and other plants for healthy habitats.
Read our Albina Garden COVID protocol HERE, volunteers must come prepared with personal facemasks and practice physical distancing rules of Albina Garden.
VOLUNTEERING WITH US
The Albina Cooperative Garden is the largest urban farm in the inner Portland area. Join us to learn about organic gardening, composting, pollinator habitat, and pruning while giving back to the local community. Volunteers will be doing a variety of activities, all of which are needed to grow organic food in a farm setting. Typically these will include: weeding, spreading compost/woodchips, composting, digging, planting, watering, transplanting, harvesting and pruning.
Volunteers should plan to bring (or wear) outdoor/gardening gear per the weather, a water bottle and gloves. Tools will be provided on site.
The novel coronavirus ("COVID-19") is a contagious and potentially life-threatening disease. Reducing the spread of COVID-19 in our community is a shared responsibility. In an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19 at Hands On volunteer activities, all volunteers are required to:
- Follow all COVID safety-rules at their volunteer site or project
- Wash their hands, at a minimum, before and after their volunteering
- Maintain physical distancing while volunteering, to the extent practicable
- Wear a cloth or disposable face covering at all times while volunteering.
Hands On appreciates your interest in volunteering to help our community in this time of extraordinary need. As part of some volunteer activities, you may risk exposure to COVID-19. If you or any member of your household is experiencing any symptom of COVID-19, or has exhibited any symptom in the past 14 days, please do not sign up for a volunteer activity at this time. Please contact the Opportunity Coordinator if you have any questions about Hands On’s COVID-19 safety rules and the expectations for volunteers.
Volunteers must be 10 years of age or older to attend this project; any volunteer under age 16 must attend with a parent or adult chaperone.
