Volunteer With Us

Thank you for your interest in Volunteering with Mill City Grows!

Many hands make light work, AND delicious vegetables for Lowell!  Volunteer with Mill City Grows and get your hands dirty at our Urban Farms! Our Volunteer Calendar for the 2017 Season (March – November) is now available. Please see below for available dates and times for volunteering.

Volunteering as a Group
We welcome Volunteer Groups of between 5 – 30 people to join us at our Big Farm in Pawtucketville on Fridays from 1pm – 4pm. Please fill out the Group Volunteer Application below and someone from our team will follow up to schedule your group. We humbly suggest that group volunteers make a $5/person contribution to Mill City Grows to help offset the staff cost of coordinating volunteer projects.

Volunteering as an Individual
We welcome individual volunteers to join us at our farms on first and third Thursdays, 4pm – 5:30pm (at Mill City Grows’ Urban Farm at Mill No. 5) and alternating Saturdays, 9am-12pm (at our Big Farm in Pawtucketville). Please fill out the Individual Volunteer Application below and someone from our team will follow up.
