Summer School Garden Volunteers

We have opportunities available for volunteering in all 15 school gardens that we manage in the Northeast Kingdom. Volunteering involves signing up for one week during the summer at a specific garden site and helping with weeding, pest control, watering, and harvesting. You can come on your own or bring a friend or family member with you. Enjoy the relaxation of the garden, give back to the community, and take some veggies home with you!

Food Sovereignty & Education
Summer Internship

We have an internship position open this summer to join the Farm-to-School team of AmeriCorps and staff members, leading hands-on educational programs, working in school gardens, and supporting food sovereignty programs in the community. This is an excellent opportunity to develop your professional skills, while supporting the local food movement, education, and food access!
