Volunteering at Slide Ranch
Slide Ranch offers rewarding volunteer opportunities for individuals and groups from throughout the Bay Area. While working under the supervision of trained staff on our teaching farm and 134 acres of wild lands, volunteers contribute to Slide Ranch in a variety of ways, including working in our organic garden (weeding, pruning, prepping garden beds, planting and pest control,) composting, restoring native plants and removing invasive plants, and maintaining trails and beach access.
Slide Ranch welcomes the participation of all volunteers, aged 14 and older. For students fulfilling community service hours, corporate and community group team building or individuals who want to put a green thumb to good use, Slide Ranch provides challenging, engaging and meaningful experiences. Volunteers may schedule a one-time visit or volunteer on a regular basis as part of an ongoing project.
In addition to volunteering in our garden and on the land, volunteers can support Slide Ranch by contributing other interests, skills, and talents. Volunteers with expertise in construction and carpentry, tech or social media experience, and craftspeople, performers and artisans for special events are often needed.
Volunteer days are scheduled weekly for Wednesdays from 10am until 1pm. Make sure to wear sturdy shoes, dress in layers that you are okay getting dirty, bring snacks/lunch, and a reusable water bottle. All other tools and supplies will be provided.
Please call the Slide Ranch office at 415.381.6155 to register for one of these days or for more information and group scheduling. All volunteer visits must be scheduled in advance.
