Due to COVID-19 we are not currently hosting any volunteer work in the gardens. If you would like to help with emergency food relief efforts, visit this website.

Join us! Volunteers are essential to our success. People of all ages, backgrounds and interests are encouraged to come out.

What will we be doing?

City Schoolyard Garden volunteers can help prepare and distribute Harvest of the Month crops, or help with special projects in the gardens.

Urban Agriculture Collective volunteers can help with all levels of growing and harvesting, including planting, harvesting, weed control.

Food Justice Network volunteers may be asked to help with campaigns, outreach or special research related to our advocacy.

We always welcome organizational interns on a semester or academic-year schedule. Interns support our staff in the office, or as the gardens as their schedule and interests allow.

To get started as a volunteer or intern with Cultivate Charlottesville, email volunteer@cultivatecharlottesville.org with your interests and availability.
