So, you’re thinking about volunteering with Grow Food Northampton!
From our first days as an impassioned citizen group, community volunteers have been the backbone of Grow Food Northampton. We continue to rely heavily on volunteers as we develop our community garden, support our farmers, and carry out our food access and educational programs. Thank you for your interest!
