Are you interested in volunteering on an organic farm? Nature’s Way-Fruit is a start-up orchard/farm that grows healthy, sustainable fruits, berries and vegetables, while offering educational opportunities to the community.
Located less than 45 minutes from west Toronto, volunteering at Nature’s Way-Fruit is great way to learn to grow fruit trees close to Toronto while enriching your own life.
For farm work, our volunteer day will be Friday or Saturday (depending on your availability), from May to September, (10:00 to 14:30).
Volunteer activities include planting, weeding, harvesting, packing berries for market, plant care, etc.
