Sowing and Growing with the New Agrarian Center and Farm (LCVC)
The New Agrarian Center is a tax-exempt, not-for-profit organization that helps to build healthy, sustainable & equitable communities and local food systems through two key programs:
-City Fresh provides naturally grown, local produce at weekly Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Fresh Stop's in Cuyahoga and Lorain counties.
-The George Jones Farm is a 70 acre research farm with a rich complex of market gardens, learning spaces, naturally designed buildings, restored wetland, prairie, and woodland habitats. The goal is to train the next generation of farmers while inspiring an ethic of earth care.
Age Limits: This project is for volunteers age 12 and up. All volunteers under 18 must fill out and bring a youth waiver form signed by a parent or legal guardian. Volunteers under 16 must volunteer alongside a parent or guardian.
Things to Remember: Wear clothes that can get dirty and a pair of closed toe shoes. Volunteers will spend most of the session outdoors, so dress appropriately for the weather. Bringing a bottle of water, a hat, and sunscreen is recommended for warmer months. The restroom at this project is an outhouse.
Where to Meet Your Leader: Meet in the small gravel parking lot next to the greenhouses, all the way up the driveway.
If you would like to bring a non-oriented volunteer, please email the Opportunity Leader to request permission and reserve a guest spot.
Special Driving Instructions: The farm is located between State Route 20 and downtown Oberlin.
This project is part of the partnership between HandsOn NEO and United Way of Greater Lorain County to expand volunteer opportunities in Lorain County. Wherever you live or work, we would love to have you join us for these projects managed by volunteer leaders through this partnership!
