HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Victory Programs' Urban Farm grew out of ReVision Family Home, a shelter for homeless families. The farm brings fresh, locally grown produce to the Dorchester and Mattapan communities.

DESCRIPTION

Ongoing physically distanced volunteer opportunities are available during the spring, summer, and fall months at Victory Programs' ReVision Urban Farm. Come lend a hand and be a part of the growing local food and urban agriculture movement! Work will vary depending on the season but may include seeding, transplanting, weeding, harvesting, pruning, landscape work and general maintenance.


ITEMS NEEDED


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

Volunteers will be asked to sign a COVID-19 waiver before their first shift and answer questions about their exposure to COVID-19 before any subsequent shift. Safety measures, including masks and physically distancing, are in place for the safety of our clients, staff and volunteers.
