Volunteering

Volunteers are vital to our mission at Aurelia’s Garden. Please join us! We are a volunteer organized and volunteer operated nonprofit company. It is our volunteers that make Aurelia’s Garden work. 

We love seeing familiar faces in the garden. It is equally wonderful to meet new gardeners! We welcome you to join us in growing nutritious fresh food for our local food insecure communities.

We have two fields that we farm: one in Wayland and one in Medway MA. Times that we work are Thursday morning for Wayland and Friday morning for Medway.

To volunteer, please sign up for a date, time and location at our portal, Sign-Up Genius. Please sign up before 6 pm the night before the volunteer session to help us plan and prepare for you. Volunteers are required to be over 18 years of age.

COVID-19 is in the forefront in our minds and we are adhering to policies to keep our volunteers safe. The number of volunteers in the field at one time is currently limited to six. We maintain a wait-list for volunteers that you can sign up at our portal and will notify you if positions open up. We appreciate your efforts to join us.

Aurelia’s Garden in WAYLAND

Tucked into the lush beauty of the Sudbury Valley Trustees conservation land, our Wayland micro-farm is a wonderful place to come learn to grow vegetables and participate in providing fresh food to the local community. Currently, we are tending 10,000 square feet of land and have a wide variety of crops in production.

To work with us in Wayland, please sign up at our Wayland Sign Up Genius so we know to expect you.  Once you sign up, we will email you our work plan for that day and let you know about any tools or supplies you should bring.

Our summer volunteer times in Wayland are Thursdays from 8:00 am to 10:00 am and 10:00 am to 12:00 noon. You are welcome to sign up for all four hours as well.

On your volunteer day, be prepared for a 5-minute walk to the field and a location with no facilities. Volunteers should bring their water and snacks. Due to Covid-19, we require masks and social distancing.

New volunteers are required to sign a waiver that we will provide at the work session. You can review the waiver here. [PDF of waiver]

Aurelia’s Garden in MEDWAY

We would love to have you help us nurture a food pantry garden in partnership with Medway Community Farm. If you would like to come garden with us while enjoying the peace and beauty of surrounding land please sign up at our Medway Sign Up Genius. We will communicate important details, work plans, and at changes we might have for the session you plan to attend.

Folks should bring their own water and snacks.

For Covid-19, masks and social distancing will be required. Our summer volunteer times at Medway are Fridays, 8:00 am to 10:00 am and 10:00 am to 12:00 noon. You are welcome to sign up for all four hours as well.
