Volunteer farmhands needed for Summer 2017!

June 20 – Aug 18
This Summer we have 3 ways to be involved:


Summer Internships
The Farmessori is booming with activity during the Summer months, and you can be a part of it! Work in the garden, help with the chickens & goats, and even help us develop the new Farmessori in the lot across from the school.

  • Open to NNM students age 9 – 14.
  • Internships run for 1 week at a time Mon-Fri. Sign up for as many weeks as you wish!
  • Work is from 9:00am-12:00pm each day. Limit 6 students per day.
  • Jr High students may earn community service hours for this work.

Family Fridays (all ages)
Volunteer time slots are every Friday, 9:00am-12:00pm. On this day, all children must be with a supervising adult. Families please sign up on this Doodle schedule (limit 4 families per day).


Chicken Checker Crew (ongoing)
Family volunteers are always needed to help with the chickens on weekends. Contact Farmer Joe to be added to the mailing list, after which time you will be able to sign up for evening and morning shifts. It’s easy and fun!


The Farmessori is located at 1110 N. Wood Street. Bathroom facility is a “rustic” compost toilet.
