Produce Donation Delivery 

Farm Discovery is partnering with Pajaro Valley Loaves & FishesEncompass Community Services, Transitional Age Youth program, and Holy Cross Food Pantry and a growing number of programs to help ensure that farmworkers, youth, families and seniors in our community have access to fresh produce. We have been coordinating distribution of hundreds of pounds of produce twice a week and are looking for volunteers to pick up and deliver produce donations to our partner organizations in the community. Come help us feed those in need!

Garden Docent or Garden Work Day

Garden Docents help maintain our 1/3 acre Discovery Garden and surrounding Discovery Fields. With help and training from our staff, docents prepare beds, plant, harvest, propagate, mulch paths, and occasionally work with students in our educational spaces. Garden Docents are also welcome to join training sessions for Program Docents to learn our activities and outdoor education tips and tricks.

Garden Work Days are great for groups who want to volunteer together. Join us for a day or half day and help us get a bigger farming project done!

Event Docent & Booth Hosts

Event Docents act as ambassadors of our farm, lead learning stations, collect parking fees, set-up and clean-up during our 4 annual community events in March, June, September, and October.

Booth Hosts are a great way for a group to volunteer together. Your club, business, or book club can work together with our supplies to lead a hands-on activity at our events.

Program Docent

Program Docents help lead farm tours especially for large groups of students. Docents receive training to lead all of our field trip activity stations and learn tips and tricks for educating kids in an outdoor setting. During a field trip docents are either responsible for running one station four times with 12-15 kids, or all four stations with the same 12-15 kids all morning. Field trips are currently offered on Monday and Friday Mornings September through Thanksgiving and April through the end of the school year.

Photographers/Videographers/Bloggers

Photographs and videos are an important tool for telling our story. We need photographers and videographers to take photos or videos of our farm tours and events. The subject matter is inspiring and easy to make look good.  Who doesn’t love babies in vegetable patches, farm animals and glorious natural landscapes? We would welcome as many volunteers as are interested in helping us record our achievements.
