Volunteer on Fanfield Farm
Come and volunteer with us on specific days each week in Arlington, East Sussex.
Due to the pandemic, we have had to close our volunteer days for the last few months. We will soon be opening up again, hopefully the first week of June to set numbers.
If you are interested, make sure to drop your name and email below so you can reserve a space when we are open again.
Join the Volunteer list:
We will let you know the details each week and if we hold any specific extra days too, just drop your name and email below.
Limited Spaces available at present due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Each week we will be open from Wednesdays 10am – 4pm, and have the kettle on all day. You can either pop in for a visit, or you can come along to volunteer. Each week we give a farm tour to new volunteers, and then have a list of varied tasks to get through from planting, to preparing beds, to building, or just prep of the farm. We try to vary these tasks so it isn’t repetitive and that you learn something and enjoy every visit.
We provide lunch for our volunteers, which is normally a vegan soup at the moment.. In the summer it will be a spread of what we are growing on the farm. The community lunch is super important to us, so we hope you can make it.
We believe there has been a disconnect over the last decade where people have seen food as a task and a convenience and this has seen farms move away from being a central hub within the community. We want to revitalise that, and bring them back to being a welcoming place, where you can get back to nature, get fresh air, great food and get your hands dirty… whilst also learning how you can apply this to your own garden, or simply learn where food comes from again.
We’re looking for change makers, local food lovers, and people who can see the benefit in small scale farming and the benefit of knowing where food comes from and a farm being a part of the community again.
We hope to see you on the farm.
