Details:

Clarfield Farm is part of Urban Farms of Central Ohio, an initiative of Mid-Ohio Foodbank. They are dedicated to transforming vacant sites in under-served neighborhoods into productive, sustainable urban farms that provide food insecure residents access to fresh, local produce, jobs and job training, and opportunities for civic engagement.


As a volunteer, your team will be responsible for 
planting seeds and seedlings, weeding, pruning plants, spreading compost, and harvesting produce. Additional opportunities may include; creating encouragement cards for food pantry clients and/or decorating terracota flower pots.

  • Dress for the weather in comfortable clothes that can get dirty.
  • Sunscreen is encouraged during warmer months.
  • Wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes.
  • Supplies, including tools and gloves, will be provided.
  • We encourage volunteers to bring a bottle of water or something to keep hydrated.
  • Please park near the farm stand that will be located on your left hand side immediately after you pull into the drive. The school is now open and children are often on the grounds so please use caution and drive slowly.
  • We will gather near the only tree in the parking lot behind the school building closest to the farms high-tunnels.
