Community Farm Ethics:
- Make sure to wear close-toed shoes (no sandals
or open-toed shoes) – it’s required while working on the farm, so we all stay injury-free.
- If you have questions, are unclear on instructions, or don’t know how or what to do, PLEASE ASK!
- When you’re done with a task, clean up all tools and materials immediately. If you don’t know where something goes, ask staff or put it back where and how you found it.
- If you see something broken or out of place, let us know so we can fix it.
- Be safe. We want to work hard and efficiently, while also remaining injury-free. Make sure to drink water, take breaks and pace yourself as needed.
