Join a TLC Farm Volunteer Team!

Kids in Greenhouse with Education Intern Alycia Bouyanan
We have multiple ongoing Volunteer Teams that need more volunteers! 
The next general Volunteer Orientation is Saturday, April 27 from 4-6 pm (right before the Community Potluck, which you are welcome to stay for!)
TLC Farm Land Tending Team: responsible for the care of the grounds and physical structures on the land. This year, we'll be hosting work parties to remove invasive species, build a new structure in the Village Green, and maintain the gravel path that crosses the land. We have a few new projects we'd love to launch if we find volunteers! These include an Adopt a Plot program, starting a TLC garden plot, invasive/aggressive species inventory, and reaching out to local colleges to be included as a potential site for capstone/research projects. 
If you want to join in the fun, come to our regular monthly Land Tending work party from 10 am-12 pm on the last Saturday of each month, then stay for our Land Tending Volunteer Team meeting from 12-1pm.
TLC Farm Outdoor Education Team:
Do you like working outdoors with kids? Are you passionate about teaching youth a range of sustainability topics including gardening, natural building, or restoration?
Join our Outdoor Education Volunteer Team! This team helps lead youth outdoor education tours and events at TLC Farm. Our program engages youth from preschool through college in an interactive farm tour and hands-on activities and lessons on specific sustainability themes such as gardening, permaculture, natural building, restoration, medicinal plants, forest ecology, and more.
Volunteer Educators help lead youth field trip activities at Tryon Life Community Farm using activities from TLC Farm's curriculum. Training will be provided. No experience is necessary, although previous experience working with youth is a huge bonus. 
TLC Farm Workshop Team: helps plan and organize educational workshops at TLC Farm. Tasks include outreach and communication with workshop teachers, organizing and planning the logistics of the workshop and hosting the event. 
TLC Farm Outreach Team: helps promote workshops, events, and the TLC Farm in general. Tasks include outreach, distributing fliers, posting on websites, tabling, fundraising, and more. 
Tasks can be divided up among team members depending on your capacity, interests, and schedule. If you're interested in the Workshop or Outreach team, contact our Engagement Coordinator at
