Volunteering with The Land Connection is an opportunity for you to help make a bigger impact in our local food system. We frequently need assistance with:
- Data Entry – We collect a variety of data from our stakeholders including surveys, evaluations, and feedback. We also track data for grants and our annual reports. If you have experience with using Microsoft Office and Google Drive, we would love your assistance.
- Filing – Now and again, we get a bit behind on keeping our files in order. We would love someone who is detail-oriented and interested in keeping our paper trails organized.
Do you bring another skill or experience that you feel could be useful to The Land Connection? This is a very limited list of what happens in our organization on a daily basis, so please reach out and let us know how you can contribute.
We also frequently need assistance with our events. It takes many volunteers to ensure that our attendees have a wonderful experience. Click on the links below to learn more about these volunteer opportunities:
