Did you know the Piedmont Farm Tour requires the help of over 140 volunteers! It’s true, and we couldn’t do the event without them!
We have 40 awesome Piedmont Triangle Farms on the tour. We ask that folks show up at their farm at 1:30 and stay until 6 PM. We will send you full instructions before the tour happens.
Volunteers typically help us at each farm to staff a registration table. This is where people check in and get oriented. Doing this frees up the the farmer to do walking tours and show people around. Each volunteer receives a free, limited edition tour t-shirt crafted by Linda Fullwood at Weaver Street Market and are put on our Volunteer VIP List to receive a free button at the registration desk when they tour the other day with a carload of people.
To sign up, simply go to our VolunteerSpot link and check out the available farms: http://vols.pt/y3j2Ur
. Please note that if you want to sign up with a friend/spouse/partner, etc you are not limited just to the farms that say they have two spaces available. When you click to sign up, any open space will have a “bring a friend option” and you can list your 2nd volunteer’s information and t-shirt size then.
There are short descriptions of each farm at VolunteerSpot. Longer descriptions are available at our Farm Tour Google Map: https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=zLzWcteXlhTU.knA9UGaiBQiI
. This could also help you select a site based partly on location. Plus, most of the descriptions contain links to the farms websites – great places to learn more about the cool work going on at each site.
Thank you for considering volunteering!
