Volunteer Program Update – March 8, 2022

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

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

-Before you leave to come to the farm, please complete this Covid self-assessment form.

-Please wear a mask over your mouth and nose while on site. Generally, you are required to wear a mask at all times, except in some circumstances when you are specifically working away from others.

-If the portable toilets are installed please use them and do not go inside the farm house. Please bring your own supply of water, and if you need more ask a BCCF staff.

-If you have your own gardening gloves, please bring them, otherwise we can provide.

Thanks for your cooperation and understanding.

We’d be happy to work with you to create a memorable volunteer engagement to suit your team or group. For rates and availability please contact bookings@blackcreekfarm.ca or (416) 393-6381 ext. 102.

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.
