Flower Power Team

May – October, Anytime on Wednesdays

If you've ever been curious about growing flowers, harvesting or creating beautiful bouquets, you will be a perfect fit for the Sharing Farm's Flower Power Team!

Whether you're experienced or just beginning, this team offers the chance to learn and grow flowers with knowledgable staff members and volunteers. It also provides the opportunity to witness the growth of flowers from seed to bloom to bouquet! These bouquets are sold as a Farm fundraiser, so your participation directly supports the Sharing Farm's mission to provide fresh, healthy, sustainably grown produce to community members facing food insecurity.

 

Starting in May, the Flower Power Team meets every Wednesday and asks for a minimum time commitment of 3 hours per week. You can come for the morning, the afternoon or spend the whole day in the garden if you'd like!

Please email volunteering@sharingfarm.ca if you are interested in joining the Flower Power Team for 2023/2024 season.

Volunteer at the 2023 Richmond Garlic Fest on August 20th!

Our annual festival fundraiser wouldn't be possible without the help of our volunteers

Volunteers are an integral part of the Garlic Fest.  From serving garlic ice cream to making garlic braided headbands in our kid's zone, we couldn't do it without your help!
