Volunteer Groups

Signing up your group for a farm workday!

Volunteering together on a farm can be a great way to bond with your co-workers, friends, spiritual community, classmates, etc. Three Part Harmony Farm has capacity to schedule one volunteer group per month, and we recommend scheduling with us in advance. Read the information below and contact us to reserve your spot.

Farm Workday in Brookland

Groups of 5 – 25 adults work with us for a few hours in the cooler morning, do a DIY tour on the farm, and are invited to eat lunch (BYO!) with the farmer and staff and ask questions about sustainable agriculture, Food Policy in the District, connecting social justice values and farming, and get clarity on what they saw and experienced during the workday.

When you volunteer at our 2 acre farm, you’ll jump right in to join our crew in whatever field work is on our task list for the day, including but not limited to: planting, weeding, mulching and bed prep. We have regular clean up days to help maintain the property, clearing out invasives, etc. as well as build days where we construct sheds, out buildings, raised beds you name it so if your group has special technical skills to offer please let us know!

Volunteers are asked to:

  • arrive on time
  • bring your own water bottle and lunch
  • bring a printed copy of the waiver
  • show up dressed in clothes and footwear appropriate for working in dirt
  • have a good attitude and sense of humor
  • be respectful of each other, the farm staff, the plant and animal life on the farm, and our neighbors
