LONG-TERM VOLUNTEERING ON THE FARM (WWOOFing)

Long-term volunteers work alongside the field crew roughly four 8-hour days per week. Daily activities include seeding, bed preparation, transplanting, weeding, harvesting, washing, packing, animal chores, construction projects, farmstand work, farm-based education, etc. The work is hard, but also highly educational and rewarding. Volunteers need not have farm experience, but must be enthusiastic about growing food.

  • We ask a minimum of one month commitment and prefer at least two months. We are able to accommodate live-in volunteers from April through the end of October.
  • Food, housing and kitchen and bath amenities are included in WWOOF experience. Tenting is also an option.
  • Evening and weekend activities include fishing, swimming (sandy beaches located within 1 mile), hiking, music making and attending various organization sponsored events.
  • During the week, we share all meals and rotate cooking responsibilities. Vegetarian and vegan diets are accommodated.
  • Children and pets are not allowed. 
  • Public transportation is available from Manhattan, Boston and New London, CT, to Greenport, NY, which is just a short ferry ride away from Shelter Island.
