We love our volunteers!

The contribution volunteers make at Slide Ranch truly helps us deliver our mission. Whether you're a student fulfilling community service hours, a corporate and community group looking for team-building, or someone who wants to put your green thumb to good use, Slide Ranch provides challenging, engaging and meaningful experiences. 

Slide Ranch welcomes the participation of all volunteers, aged 14 and older. All minors need a waiver signed by their parents or legal guardians. We have set times and days for individuals to volunteer, and groups are scheduled on a case by case basis. Volunteers may also schedule a one-time visit or volunteer on a regular basis as part of an ongoing project.


We would like to invite you to our annual spring celebration, SPRING FLING, on Saturday, April 27, 2019.  Spring Fling is our biggest family farm event and fundraiser of the year. This year we are celebrating spring with activities including sheep shearing, goat kid bottle feeding, indigo natural dye, garden cooking activities, live music, and delicious farm-fresh food for sale. This year’s Spring Fling will highlight collective awareness and action for environmental sustainability and climate change. 

We are now recruiting volunteers to help make this fundraiser a success.  Volunteers (16+) can work for either a whole or half-day shift and gain free entrance to the event as well as refreshments and meal tickets. Please register using the link below to reserve your spot. Volunteers are also invited to a special potluck dinner and Yurt dance party following the event and are invited to camp out!  We welcome volunteers ages 16+ for half-day or full-day shifts, and to celebrate with an optional potluck dinner and camp out after the event.
Our volunteer spots are limited and do fill up. Please sign up here: SPRING FLING VOLUNTEER REGISTRATION
