Volunteer Days on the Farm

Bluestone Farm and Living Arts Center offers regular volunteer days! Every month from March through November (contact us for exact date), bring a sack lunch and we’ll provide wholesome farm work, a dessert, and beverage. The official work period is 9:00 am to 1:00, when we share lunch together. If you would like to resume work after lunch until 4:00, you are most welcome! Work in the main garden or in Sweet William’s Field or maybe even in the cow barn/pasture.  If it rains we’ll work indoors.

You can let us know if you’re coming, and ask any questions you might have, by sending an email to us. Come for fun and fellowship and the wonderful experience of getting your hands in the soil and communing with all the farm creatures — animal, vegetable, and mineral.
