    Organization: Gorman Heritage Farms

    As a Volunteer Farm Educator you will get to:

    • Learn new skills and information relating to farm animal interactions, agriculture, and education while being a farm guide for children as part of a talented and enthusiastic staff
    • Attend volunteer enrichment workshops and volunteer appreciation events
    • Gain work-related experience while earning community service credit, if needed

    Volunteer Farm Educators are expected to:

    Lead meaningful, educational, and safe farm experiences for groups of about 10 children. Volunteer Farm Educators help school groups have a safe, happy and empowering experience by being an effective and engaging teacher on topics like gardening, pollination, food sources, farm animal interactions, and Ohio history, which supports the mission of Gorman Heritage Farm. Educators are not responsible for the direct supervision of children, only the presentation of material; Gorman Heritage Farm requires supervision from school group chaperones and teachers.

    Come to volunteer on scheduled days with a positive attitude prepared to teach children. Volunteer Farm Educators are expected to be punctual and dependable in their arrival, with a professional and farm-appropriate attire. A name tag and a Gorman Heritage Farm T-shirt will be provided.

    Work with other Volunteer Farm Educators, Education Coordinator, and Director of Education to enhance and improve our programs. We work and play together as an effective team blending staff and volunteers. We offer our volunteers opportunities and resources for growth and learning. Volunteer Farm Educators are expected to read the educational materials provided and be responsive to feedback. We also appreciate and listen to the feedback of our volunteers as the season progresses.

    Provide leadership, structure and organization. Educators welcome visitors to the site, answer questions, and direct visitors to restrooms and first aid locations. Educators are able to appropriately and politely direct chaperones in the event that support is needed during an education tour. Educators communicate issues and questions from tour groups to staff members. Educators are also responsible for instructing visitors in emergency procedures should the need arise, with direction from staff members.

    Organization: Civic Garden Center

    Held the first weekend in May, The Plant Sale is our largest event here at the CGC. We will need TONS of volunteers for this event, for that weekend and leading up to it.

    The 2021 Plant Sale is a combination of an online sale, happening now through April 29th, and a 1 day in-person sale of leftover plants and our Green Flea on Saturday, May 8th. Volunteers will help in fulfilling online orders being picked up between April 30th and May 2nd. With a majority of plant material sold online, this pick-up process will be a significant, and entirely new, undertaking for CGC staff and volunteers. Any plant material that was not sold online will be sold on May 8th along with a few selections of back ordered plants and our infamous Green Flea, hope to see you there!

    For any additional information on volunteering, please contact us at:

    volunteer@civicgardencenter.org or call (513)-221-0981

    Thank you for volunteering your time and energy to help us create a successful Cincinnati Recycling & Reuse Hub!
