Becoming a volunteer at GeerCrest means becoming part of our extended farm family. When you put energy into GeerCrest Farm you are building upon the work of generations. Even if you are volunteering in one area you will be serving the whole and have the opportunity to participate in the interconnected homestead experience. Although, a regular commitment is preferred due to the training involved, we are willing to be flexible and work with varied schedules if you feel a calling to serve.
