Volunteer Opportunities At Hilltop Hanover Farm

Volunteer activities in the growing fields will include weeding, laying hay, and assisting with planting/transplanting/repotting specimens.

Other tasks this week will focus on sanitizing plant trays, weeding in the greenhouse, with other opportunities weather-permitting. Tasks will be assigned based on ability. Some tasks may roll over into multiple days.
