Get your hands dirty and help SPACE’s farm team harvest and prepare fresh organic produce for customers in Putnam County, New York City and beyond! SPACE is currently looking for volunteers to help with two different kinds of work on the farm:
Join our farmers in the field and help harvest vegetables, herbs and flowers from Ryder Farm to be given to our CSA members or sold at the Union Square Greenmarket or our roadside farmstand in Brewster. Harvest volunteers can sign up for a shift on either Tuesdays or Thursdays from 8am-12pm at Ryder Farm.
Help SPACE’s farm team assemble and style Ryder Farm’s famous farm-fresh bouquets to be sold at the Union Square Greenmarket on Fridays. Bouquet volunteers can sign up for a shift on Thursdays from 2pm-6pm at Ryder Farm.
Please note all volunteer appointments take place at Ryder Farm (406 Starr Ridge Road Brewster, NY 10509). At this time, we are unable to provide transportation to and from Ryder Farm so volunteers will have to provide their own transportation to the farm for volunteer shifts. For those driving to the farm, you will want to use the above address to plug into your GPS. For those traveling to the farm via the Brewster MetroNorth station, you can find a schedule for the Harlem Line train to Southeast HERE and cabs are available at the Brewster station at all hours of the day.
Use this scheduling widget to sign up for as many shifts as you would like!
