Here at Blackwood we rely on incredibly passionate volunteers. We see our volunteer opportunities as a regenerative activity; a way to immerse yourself in the importance of a resilient and sustainable food system. Check out our current opportunities below and help us continue our impact on education and preservation.
Assist our Farm Director with day-to-day tasks
Come out to Blackwood every Thursday (or any you are available) to assist our Farm Director with planting, harvesting, upkeep of our gardens and greenhouses, and more! This is a labor intensive opportunity but what better way to spend your day than in the beautiful outdoors? We usually work from 8am-12pm but are flexible to host volunteers for any amount of time during that period.
Help with set-up and clean-up for our Mornings in the Country
Our Mornings’ in the Country are an opportunity for people to experience the beauty of Blackwood on the weekend. We rely on volunteers for this event to ensure everything is running smoothly and efficiently. tasks include setting up decorations, helping with food prep, and assisting with dishes and clean-up after the meal.
Run our CSA check-in
Our CSA will be starting back up this Spring and we are opening some new locations. In order to implement successful expansion of the program, we need volunteers who are available on Friday afternoons to ensure participants received the correct produce order. Additionally, we are looking for businesses to become drop sites in Houston!
