How To Help

Volunteer

Growing Veterans loves our volunteers, and we wouldn’t be able to accomplish the tall orders without them. Volunteering at Growing Veterans is a more profound interaction than merely volunteering. It is essential to our mission because "community" decreases veteran isolation, and veteran isolation is a gateway to the multitude of issues that veterans live. Veteran and civilian volunteers participate shoulder to shoulder, this simple interaction elicits stories and commonalities which make us a feel part of something greater than ourselves.

There are many ways to volunteer at Growing Veterans. The most common way is to come out to the farm to lend a hand and get to know our staff and volunteers. Volunteers can also help with clerical and administrative tasks, fundraising, outreach and other activities. We welcome individuals and large organized groups of volunteers, please consider us for your next company, school or organizations day of service.
