Sign Up to Volunteer


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Gaining Ground is currently closed to volunteers. Please click here to read a letter of explanation from our Executive Director, Jennifer Johnson.


In early February, we open up the the online sign-up process for our  sugaring and farming sessions. Sugaring sessions are generally mid February through mid March, weather dependent. Farm volunteer sessions are scheduled from early May through late October.  

Have you read our volunteer guidelines with important details about volunteering? If so, you are ready to 1) sign up for specific sessions as an individual volunteer, or 2) request a session to volunteer as a group.

During the busy season, it may take 2–3 days for us to follow up with you, so please schedule well in advance. Your volunteer session is not confirmed until you receive a written confirmation from our system and/or our volunteer coordinator.

Thanks for your interest!
