Informal Learning

There are lots of ways to join us at Hayes Farm without committing to a full-time or formal program. Take a look at our informal opportunities below, including Growers' Guild sessions, drop-in learning (returning in May 2021), and volunteering. 


Drop-in Sessions

Drop in sessions will be back in May 2021!

We are excited to be bringing back our public offering of online drop-in learning sessions. Most sessions are discussion style, with some power points and formal delivery. 

Advance registration (at least 1 day prior) will be required, and participants will receive an email invitation to join online via Zoom. Each workshop is from 9-11:30 am. With your $20 annual NB Community Harvest Gardens membership, each session is ONLY $5!! 

Look for the full schedule in May. We hope you'll come learn with us this season!

We are always looking for extra sets of hands and extra  minds to help us work toward our mission, and to simply get things done. Whether your interest is 'in the weeds' on farm, connecting with community, helping on veggie pick up days, early season help in the hoop house, logistics, or organizational structure and governance (etc., etc., etc.!), we would love to have you as part of our team!

Volunteer opportunities can be one-time only or routine, and we love to host groups for team building and community days of action. 

If you are interested in volunteering with us at Hayes Farm, please get in touch with the Hayes Farm Coordinator (Claire) at Can't wait to hear from you!


Growers' Guild Sessions - Winter 2021; complete until next winter!

Growers' Guild sessions are not workshops. Instead, we are gathering like-minded people - from beginners to professionals - to discuss a common topic. Hayes Farm invites you online to join us in conversation. You'll come away

with new ideas, resources, and networking opportunities, whatever your growing goals.
