Come work with us!

We would love to bring your energy into our work!

 We regularly host individuals, community groups, schools, and businesses at our five-acre farm & East Oakland nursery for volunteer work days.  

Because most of our on-site volunteer work involves working with plants, the tasks vary a great deal from season to season. Join us on a regular basis throughout the year to gain exposure to a wide variety of different activities, tools, and techniques to round out your farm, nursery & garden education.  


Individual Volunteers

Our farm welcomes volunteers every Thursday from 9am - Noon and from 1pm - 4pm.  Our nursery welcomes volunteers Monday- Saturday, 10am - 4pm. 

Once you see how great it is - we hope you'll want to invite others out to work with you too.


Community-based Groups

School groups, gardeners, farmers, summer camps, and local organizations are welcome to come volunteer or partner with us to create a day just for their group!

Planting Justice would love to host your self-organized group of 10-20 or more for a field trip, run a workshop, or plant a garden. 



We'd be glad to host your company or income-earning organization at the Farm, to make kale smoothies at your workplace, or consult for/design your garden!                         

If your workplace has a corporate giving or matching program, please be in touch!

Other offerings

For folks who have other resources to lend our team; from IT support or event space, to old/unused materials in your garage, please be in touch!

People have offered up: bamboo, videography skills, grant writing support, burlap sacks, legal counsel, kitchen appliances, and resistance art. Whoever, you are, whatever your resource, join our team!
