Volunteer Program Update – June 13, 2023

Hi All – we are now hosting volunteers for some programs. Please register on our NEW volunteer portal, apply for assignments, and sign up for shifts.

In order to stay safe at this time, we will be following these protocols:

• If you are feeling unwell or have any symptoms of Covid-19 please do not come to the farm.

• We encourage all volunteers to wear a mask over their mouth and nose while on site.

• If the portable toilets are installed please use them and do not go inside the farmhouse.

• Please bring a water bottle, sunscreen, a hat/visor to stay cool, garden gloves and wear closed-toed shoes. You can also borrow garden gloves from BCCF if you do not have your own.

Thanks for your cooperation and understanding.

Become a BCCF volunteer! We’ve got lots of ways to learn new skills, meet like-minded people, and give back. Volunteers can help out with special events, participate in drop-in opportunities, or commit to a regular volunteer shift with one of our programs. Join our volunteer community on Timecounts to stay in the loop and get involved.
