Westbay Farm: Tanisha Simpson 401-732-4660 x354 or, 1351 Centerville Road, Warwick

WBF is a nonprofit farm dedicated to growing and supplying fresh, nutritious organic produce for West Bay Marketplace Food Pantry. Farm work goes on Monday through Friday from spring to late fall, anywhere from 6:00 am to 4:30 pm. Most volunteers work in increments of time, not the entire day. Choose the amount of time and/or days you wish to volunteer! Because our growing season is short, we work in stages. Volunteering at the Farm doesn't always mean hard physical labor. Some easier jobs we do are sowing seeds in pots and trays, then "potting them up" into larger pots, prepping fields for sowing/planting, weeding, harvesting, and processing. We also have farmer's markets and plant sales. There's a job for anyone and everyone at WBF!
