Thank you to the artists who submitted to the contest and to all that participated in the public weigh-in of 'Likes' on facebook. It was lots of fun and we look forward to doing it again.
If you are interested in helping out, getting to know farmers/vendors, appreciate a little great urban-outdoors and not afraid of a little physical work, then this is for you. It's a rewarding experience and our vendors (farming is back breaking work) truly appreciate the hand.
Volunteers are mainly needed during market season, shifts are....
12:30 to 1:30pm - early set up
2pm to 3:30pm - vendor set up
6:30 to 7:45pm - wrap/clean up for vendors and organizational
You can sign up for any length of time during the season. Some volunteers do the entire season, some do a few months or take a break and come back in the fall. We understand unforeseen events that may cause volunteers to cancel. No worries, just give us notification and/or coordinate your schedule with our schedule. Easy peasy!
