Volunteering at the Farm
Garden Volunteer Opportunities
As a non-profit educational farm, Turner Farm is supported by the assistance of individual and group volunteers to assist in the day-to-day work. Every week, we are blessed by volunteers of all ages and backgrounds who have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in our gardens.
First-time volunteers are welcome on the farm every Tuesday and Wednesday between 9:00am – 11:30am only. Groups, businesses, student clubs and other organizations are welcome by appointment only.
We welcome all members of the community, however volunteers under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Draft Horse Volunteer Opportunities

Horse Training Assistant
Desired applicants should be very comfortable around horses and have a minimum of one year working with horses in some capacity. Applicants should possess a knowledge of basic horse behavior, know how to identify signs of tension and stress in the horse, and have the ability to stay mentally calm and focused in all situations. Applicants need to be physically fit, observant, demonstrate emotional control, patient, detail-oriented, timely, reliable, good communicator (in person and via text message), follow instructions well, and feel comfortable problem solving in a group setting. Prior horse training knowledge is a plus, so long as it comes along with a willingness to incorporate my suggestions and previous training experience as well.
