Do you enjoy being outdoors? Do you want to get involved in the local community? Sutton Community Farm is looking for volunteers!

We are London's most productive vegetable farm, growing over 150 cultivars of vegetables and running an organic VegBox scheme. We are open every Wednesday and Thursday throughout the year from 10am - 4pm. You can volunteer for the whole day or half a day, and we provide a community lunch on Wednesdays. Wednesdays are busy with harvesting vegetables from the field, tending to plants and preparing the VegBoxes. We are particularly interested in recruiting some new volunteers who are interested in joining the VegBox preparation team. This is a vital role to the running of the farm, with a flow of veggies coming in from the field needing to be portioned so they are ready to get packed into VegBoxes on Thursday. The role is somewhat physical as our packers need to lift crates of veg, although this can be done with the help of a fellow volunteer!

We are a community-run farm with people and vegetables at the heart of what we do, so if you are interested in finding out more, check out http://suttoncommunityfarm.org.uk/join-in/volunteering/ and fill in an application form.
