Volunteer with Youth in After School – currently full. Check back Fall 2019 or consider applying to be a summer camp volunteer!

SEEDS seeks dedicated volunteers to work with K – 8 youth in our After-School Program! We seek people with a curiosity and passion for farming, cooking, youth development, or tutoring skills to support our staff in delivering our empowering programming. These volunteer opportunities are Monday – Friday starting at approximately 3:00 PM. We ask that you are able to commit to at least one day per week for this opportunity.

Volunteer Internships for Adults 

This program is currently paused while SEEDS dives into summer camp! Applications will be available again in August 2019. 

Do you have a passion for Food Justice, Food Access Issues, and/or communities impacted by Gentrification and Food Apartheid? Share that passion and learn valuable skills with us! Through this opportunity you will:

  • Volunteer with our youth program (limited availability)
  • Get dirty!
  • Learn basic vegetable garden/farm maintenance such as plant identification, weeding, planting, and harvesting.
  • Learn seasonality of crops so you can plan for your own garden or small farm
