Volunteering at Fairgate Farm

Our volunteers are what makes Fairgte Farm the special community that it is. We gladly accept anyone who is willing to “get their hands dirty” regardless of gardening experience.

As we kick off the new season, there will be plenty of seeding, soil prep, planting, watering, weeding, composting, mulching, and more!

We will typically be at the farm Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings 9 am – 12 pm for the early spring and some afternoons (barring weather/schedule conflicts). Feel free to reach out to Farm Manager Pete Novajosky at pnovajosky@charteroakcommunities.org or 203-940-2305 if you’d like to schedule volunteer time.

Each year over 2,600 volunteer hours are logged from individuals, corporations, schools and community groups.
