The BOG relies on and welcomes volunteers from any background with any amount of experience. In addition to individuals and small groups from Bowdoin, we encourage small groups from around Maine or New England to come visit the farm and/or participate in whatever activity is going on. In the past we have hosted a group of BLAST leaders from The Food Project, an environmental studies class from Phillips Exeter High School, and Upward Bound participants during their stay at Bowdoin. We are keen to host others.
Depending on the time of year, volunteers may participate in any aspect of the farm, particularly harvesting, weeding, direct seeding and transplanting.
