Volunteering

Some of our CSA Core Group volunteers with farm partners Michele from Bee My Honey Apiary & Farmer Jay from Hepworth Farms.

 

MCFC CSA is run by member volunteers!
From planning with the farmers, to unloading the truck from the farm, to accounting, to running cooking demos, the members of the Montclair Community Food Co-op are always busy supporting each others journey to eating well. To support our farmers efforts and kept the org running, we ask that all CSA members volunteer for at least one 2 hour shift during the season. Use our Sign-Up Genius forms to choose a slot during the season that works for your schedule.  Link to Sign up Genius:

In addition to volunteering your time during the CSA season, we as members to support the programs of the Montclair Historical Society, our generous site host!
