Positions on September 22nd, 2018 at our annual feast & fundraiser and working up to the event!
Farm Discovery’s Fall Feast in the Fields is our biggest fundraising event of the year, raising about 1/3 of Farm Discovery’s annual budget. Every year we bring 150 guests to the farm, where they enjoy local wine, beer, drink, and a multi-course meal highlighting produce from Live Earth and many other local purveyors. The event also features a silent and live auction. Our theme this year is Sow & Grow, a celebration of the seeds that have been sow through years of work at farm Discovery and the bounty that will sprout and bloom in our community as a result. Your contribution will support Farm Discovery’s on-farm education programs and put your brand in front of our community minded guests and supporters during the event and beyond. Because 100% of the food, auction items, entertainment, etc. is donated, 100% of the proceeds from the Fall Feast go towards funding all nine of our farm education programs.
Volunteer at our annual farm dinner and auction, our major fundraising event to support our on-farm education programs for local youth. Under staff supervision, set up silent auction item displays and bid sheets; tally silent auction results and group by bidder; take payments for silent and live auction.
Serve multi-course, family-style dinner to 150 guests at our organic farm. Assist with post-event clean-up (trash collection, removal of decorations, folding tables and chairs, etc.). This event is our major annual fundraiser to support our on-farm education programs for local youth. This is a great group volunteer opportunity for sports teams, service clubs, co-workers, or students.
We have a silent auction in September and we have to pick up donations all over town sporadically throughout the summer. Please consider stopping by to visit our donors and pick up our items while you are out and about.
