Drop-In Volunteering: 

We welcome drop-in volunteers to help with COMPOST year-round on Fridays, 9am-12pm and Saturdays, 10:30am-1pm. For FARM volunteering, you can drop in April-November on Saturdays, 10am-1pm. Come dressed for the weather and ready to get dirty.  No RSVP required, just show up and we'll put you to work! Children are welcome for farm volunteering so long as they are accompanied by an adult. Farm work goes on hiatus during the winter months, but compost continues year-round.

For all compost-related inquires - including volunteering - please check the BBG page here, email compost@bbg.org, or call 718-623-7290. 

Organized Volunteer Events: 

Farm staff work with a variety of corporate groups and non-profits to host meaningful and productive volunteer events for their staff. We are able to accommodate groups of 10-30 people to tackle a variety of tasks - turning windrows, pulling weeds, harvesting, and special building projects, all while getting dirty and having fun! We typically ask for a $35/person donation to help us cover the cost of materials and staff time. Please email us at will@rhicenter.org to schedule a volunteer day on the farm.
