Volunteer for the Triad Farm Tour

The Carolina Farm Stewardship Association is looking for volunteers for the Triad Farm Tour taking place June 7th & 8th, 2014 in the Greensboro and Winston Salem areas.  If greeting local farm and food lovers while getting to know a local farmer is up your alley, we hope you’ll consider signing up and spreading the word to like-minded folks!
We have 17 awesome Triad Farms on the tour.  Get the tour details here:  http://www.carolinafarmstewards.org/tft/ We ask that volunteers 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 farmer to do walking tours and show people around. Volunteers are essential to the success of the tour, and each volunteer receives a free, limited edition tour t-shirt and receive a free pass to take 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/dMdZBh.  Please note that if you want to sign up with a friend/spouse/partner, any open space will have a “bring a friend option” and you can list your 2nd volunteer’s information and t-shirt size then.  Volunteer spot will send you a confirmation when you sign up.  Print this off and bring it with you to the first farm you visit on your non-volunteer day to redeem for your button (or just grab a button at your farm if you volunteer on Saturday).  If you are bringing a friend, forward the confirmation to them and/or print them out a copy, as volunteer spot doesn’t send the confirmation to the friend.

There are short descriptions of each farm at VolunteerSpot.  Longer descriptions are available at our Farm Tour Google Map: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?vps=2&ie=UTF8&hl=en&oe=UTF8&msa=0&msid=206219007257003062494.0004f7069b973f4eb048a .  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.

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 39 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/fgA8HB .  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.
