JBG welcomes volunteers weekly at either of our two Austin locations: The Garfield Farm (4008 River Rd. Cedar Creek, TX) where we grow all of our veggies, and the Hergotz Packing Shed (9515 Hergotz Ln. Austin, TX) where all of the produce is washed, packed and cooled. Volunteer on the farm for half a day (8 am to 1 pm) in exchange for a share of veggies. JBG accepts volunteers on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.
If you're interested in volunteering, please RSVP through this link. Please note that depending on the season, we may or may not be offering volunteer opportunities at our Garfield farm. You must receive confirmation email prior to coming to volunteer...and if you sign-up to volunteer it is very important that you honor your commitment and arrive at the farm on-time at your scheduled location. Please note that due to liability concerns, all volunteers must be at least 18 years of age and sign a waiver before volunteering.
Once our produce is harvested, we transport it to our packing shed at 9515 Hergotz Lane in East Austin. Here, volunteers help wash, sort, and pack veggies for our farmers markets and CSA boxes. Volunteers should wear sturdy shoes and bring plenty of water and snacks.
Volunteer shifts are half days, from 8 AM - 1PM. Depending on the season, we sometimes offer an additional Friday afternoon shift from 1-6PM. All volunteers are thanked with a share of veggies at the end of their shift.
