“No one is more cherished in this world than someone who lightens the burden of another...”
- Joseph Addison
The heart and soul of TLW are the volunteers. The farms offer everyone a chance to give back to their community and make a difference. Our volunteers come from every walk of life and every age range. We gather committed citizens from community groups, schools and universities, churches, and corporations. Every volunteer donates their time to the land as a commitment to access for fresh, locally grown food.

Individual and Small Group Volunteers
(less than 10 people)
Individuals and small groups make a tremendous impact on the farm. You are invited to sign up through our HandsOn Atlanta portal where you will find several ways to engage with us throughout the season.
(10 or more people)
Volunteer groups work in teams to assist with basic farm chores, such as mulching pathways, turning and weeding garden beds, sifting soil and working the compost. In doing so, group communication and general rapport is improved, while being outdoors reduces stress and makes for an enjoyable experience. At times, we offer multi-step projects, such as building a chicken coop or installing a garden bed.
Our minimum fee for groups is 100.00 or $10.00 per person. This covers the cost of staff engagement, as well as the materials and/or tools needed for volunteer activities and overhead costs. We are happy to consider in-kind donations for non-profits. Please click below to submit your request for a large group service opportunity.
