Volunteer Opportunities with the Intervale Center in September

Glean and Garden With Us!

We believe that all Vermonters should have access to—and be able to afford and enjoy—fresh, locally-grown food. Intervale Gleaning and Food Rescue develops sustainable solutions to improve food access in Vermont. Utilizing primarily volunteer labor, the program gleans and rescues fresh food from Intervale farms during the growing season and packages it into weekly free food shares for individuals, families and social service agencies. This allows community members and organizations to access fresh, local food from farms they know. The program also provides education and resources for participants to connect them with year-round, sustainable access to local food.

Garden in the People’s Garden With Us!
Wednesday, September 11, 18 & 25
9:30AM – 12:30PM

The People’s Garden is the pick-your-own component of the Fair Share program, a gleaned CSA for limited-income households in Chittenden County. You’ll be weeding, irrigating, cultivating, and tending to garden plants. Please come prepare to work in all weather conditions! Folks should wear good, dry boots or shoes and bring work gloves, a water bottle, sunscreen, bug spray and a snack.
Plant-A-Tree Day!
Friday, September 27
9:30AM – 12:30PM

Help the Intervale Conservation Nursery collect willows that will be turned into bio-engineering material. Volunteers can expect to be using pruners and walking around the ICN field collecting material. After collecting we will build 10 foot long bundles of willow material that will be used in a restoration project this fall.
All volunteers are eligible to receive City Market member worker credit. Questions? Email Carolyn@intervale.org or call 802-660-0440 x101
