The Acadia Community Farm grows delicious organic produce with help of dedicated community gardeners, students, staff and volunteers. As a largely volunteer initiative, the Acadia Farm is always looking for new volunteers to join the team. No experience, only enthusiasm is necessary!

Students can contact us anytime or sign-up on ASU Club Night held each September in the Student Union Building.

Volunteers are involved in all aspects of the farm operation. Activities include:

  • Planting
  • Watering
  • Weeding
  • Mulching
  • Harvesting
  • Spring clean-up and fall-prep
  • Events and much more

Volunteer work parties are scheduled throughout the week during the operating season. Plot holders and volunteers can drop in for all or part of these sessions at their convenience to work with the Farm Coordinator. Weather permitting, volunteer sessions are scheduled as follows for Fall 2022:

MONDAY: 9am-12pm
THURSDAY: 2pm-5pm
FRIDAY: Rain date (Time TBD)

The health and safety of staff, faculty, students, volunteers and visitors is our top priority. Volunteers should review the health and safety policy prior to participating in a work party.
