The Giving Fields is a community farm located in Melbourne, Kentucky that provides fresh produce for Northern Kentucky food pantries, soup kitchens, and other agencies that provide emergency food. Both individuals and groups are welcome.
Volunteers are needed to help plan, organize, plant, water, maintain, remove weeds and harvest the fields from March through October. We can accommodate large and small groups and people of all ages over 5 years old. Volunteers should wear comfortable clothing and be prepared to get dirty and/or wet. No experience is necessary. Please check-in with the farm manager when you arrive. All Giving Fields volunteers must complete the volunteer application and liability waiver, either on paper or through our electronic system prior to arriving at the farm.
