There are so many ways for you to support Growing Young Farmers. Help us grow, so we can bring our programs to more schools, and more students!
Be A Volunteer
GYFS is always excited to welcome new volunteers! If you are passionate about growing healthy food, working with children, and want to make a difference, get in touch!
Some areas where we accept volunteers:

- Become a GYFS Board Member
- Be a Summer Camp Assistant
Intrigued? To find out more, please contact us by email!
BECOME A GROWER EDUCATOR
For each weekly school visit, our Grower Educators mentor and supervise the GYFS classroom, ensuring that all the learning outcomes are covered, and that the gardens are successful. If you have experience in supervising and/or teaching school-age children, are passionate about growing and producing healthy food, and love nothing better than being in a veggie garden, then we'd love to hear from you.
