Volunteer Opportunities

Are you interested in getting your hands dirty and want to learn how to grow fruits and vegetables? Or are you with an organization or company looking for volunteer opportunities? DFI strives to offer individual and group volunteer opportunities. Please fill out this form to let us know you’re interested.

Work Trade Program: DFI is looking for committed volunteers to participate in our ongoing work trade program.  You volunteer for one 4 hour shift per week and receive $20 value of vegetables or fruit from the farm per week, along with free admission to DFI on-farm workshops.  Priority will be given to UNR students.  Most work will include harvesting, washing, and packaging produce.  Must be in good physical health.

UNR Students: Check out our GivePulse page to learn about upcoming volunteer events and to log your civic engagement hours.
