Fall Volunteer Training
Interested in joining us as a volunteer for educational programs on farms, in gardens, or school cafeterias this fall? Save the date for our Fall Volunteer Training! The orientation meeting will give you all the basics about volunteering with RVF2S. Then, pick a day to join us on the farm or in the cafeteria to observe our programs in action and get all your questions answered by our knowledgeable staff.
Tuesday, September 6th 5:30pm - 6:30pm
RVF2S, 223 5th Street in Ashland
Tuesday, September 13th 9:30am - 2pm The Farm at SOU in Ashland
Thursday, September 15th, Dunbar Farms in Medford 9:30am - 2pm
These occur in elementary schools throughout the Rogue Valley each month, beginning in September and ending in May. Volunteers are needed to help prep food and serve tastes of new vegetables to students in the cafeteria. Prep happens once a week and serving happens daily from about 10:30-1 (exact time varies depending on the school.)
Harvest Meals & Harvest Snacks
These occur on farms. Students of varying grade levels visit the farm and rotate through farm activities which always include harvesting and cooking food. Other stations might be compost, insects, plant parts or others! The day ends with a meal everyone helped to prepare, yum!
We have many school gardens that typically need volunteers as well! If this is something you're interested in, our staff will work to place you where your help will be most valued!
