Volunteers should wear clothes for outdoor work that they do not mind getting dirty. We recommend closed-toe shoes, pants, breathable long sleeve shirts, and a hat. Also consider bringing sunscreen, bug spray and gardening gloves. We provide drinking water but please bring a water bottle that you can refill. We drink a lot of water at WHF!
Sometimes guests have a difficult time finding the farm since GPS takes you to a different location. Keep this in mind when you first come to the farm. Look for the white fence surrounding the farm and the high tunnel on the farm site. If you are heading North on Moncrief (coming from UNF), the farm is just after you cross the railroad tracks on the left-hand side of the road. If you are driving south on Moncrief, the farm is just after you pass Moncrief Creek on the right-hand side of the road. Once you arrive, pull up past the metal Quonset Hut and park next to the orange storage containers.
We ask that volunteers practice social distancing while on the farm. Especially when you arrive, sign in, congregate as a group or anytime you are involved in harvesting produce. We ask that you do not volunteer if you are feeling unwell.
Thank you so much for supporting White Harvest Farms! We could not do what we do without your help!
