A Frogtown Farm Workshare provides you fresh, farm-grown produce in exchange for your time working with the Frogtown Farm field crew. We ask Workshare participants to commit to 10 visits during the season for 2 hours per visit. During those sessions, Workshare participants become an integral part of the farm crew that prepares fields, plants, amends, irrigates, harvests and cleans crops to be distributed in the Frogtown neighborhood both at the free Friday Fresh Food distributions, and at the farm’s market on Saturdays. In thanks, Workshare participants will be able to select 5 items each Saturday from the Farm’s booth at Market Saturdays over the course of the season (a $300 value over the season). Workshare shifts have flexible scheduling and are pre-arranged with the Farm Manager. Shifts are typically during Tuesday night Community Farming time, or weekdays between 8am to 2pm. This opportunity is ONLY available to nearby residents 16 years old and older. Please view the map below for eligibility. Workshare opportunities are limited in number and require a contract to be signed in advance.
