We have lots of regular volunteers at Dagenham Farm but we are always looking for more people to come and grow with us. You can volunteer with us every Wednesday from February to December. It's a great way to find out more about growing food using organic techniques, improve your growing skills or just get a bit of exercise in the fresh air. And volunteers can take part in a tasty shared lunch on Wednesdays made from farm produce.
When: February to mid December: EveryWednesday 10am to 3pm.
How: Any new vounteers for the Wednesday sessions must attend an induction on the farm at 11am. If you miss this slot we'll ask you to come back the following week. Once you've completed the induction you are welcome to volunteer with us for the full day, 10am to 3pm, in future weeks. Please make sure to wear sturdy footwear and outdoor clothing. Please note seasonal opening dates.
Who: Everyone is welcome to volunteer but any volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by an adult at all times. * We now have bee hives on the farm, our bees are working hard - making honey - but if you have a bee allergy please let our staff know in advance of visiting the farm and bring your epi-pen with you.*
