Become a Garden Leader

We are looking for dedicated volunteers who can train to oversee scheduled times at the garden. Responsibilities will vary during the season. Email us at farm@crossnore.org to learn more about Garden Leader responsibilities.

Why is it important to become a Garden Leader? Miracle Grounds Farm is a special place that attracts volunteer interest from all over our community. As a leader, you will get hands on experience in the garden and access to learning one-on-one with our farm coordinator. This is a chance for you to deepen your knowledge of organic gardening and build relationships with people in our community. 

Volunteers are asked to do the following:

  • Be 16 years old or older, unless accompanied by an adult.
  • Complete and sign three waivers and return them virtually or physically to Farm Coordinator.
  • Have your temperature checked upon arrival, before entering the farm.
  • Bring your mask and practice social distancing in the presence of other volunteers.
  • Dress appropriately for the weather and bring your work gloves and water.

Parking

Parking is available in the gravel lot at the far end of the food forest, opposite the greenhouse. If you are parking along the road, pull into grass so you are completely off the road.
