Get Involved with our Spring and Summer Opportunities:
Asheville City Market Volunteer: Support our weekly Saturday farmers market with tasks involving early morning set up (6:30-8), break down (11:30-1:30), special events and promotions tabling, and more. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Minimum monthly requirement for new volunteers.
Photography Volunteer: Are you a photo student or an amateur or professional photographer? Contact ASAP to find out how you can help us promote local food and farms with your photography. Photographers who volunteer with ASAP tell the story of food and agriculture in the mountains by taking photos at events, farmers markets, farm tours. Volunteers also conduct photo shoots at farms for our promotional farmer profiles. For details, contact Lee Seabrook at email@example.com.
Farmers Market Reporters: Wonder how we get all of that great information for our weekly tailgate market reports? Volunteers, along with farmers, interns, ASAP staff, and market vendors, send us reports and photos of what’s new and in season at local farmer’s markets. Visit local farmers markets and chat with vendors to get the scoop on what’s new or will be arriving at markets soon. Send your market notes and photos to Jaclyn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Office Volunteers: We love our office volunteers! Enjoy data entry, filing, making phone calls, or assembling materials? We can use your organizational know-how and office support!
Arts and Crafts Volunteers: If you are a quilter, costume maker, woodworker, potter, painter, or puppeteer, we would love to apply your skills towards creating aesthetic and functional materials for engaging the public around food and farms. We have lots of crafty wish list items, including paperweights for event tabling, produce/farmer costumes, head-in-hole cutouts, table runners, games, and more. Check out our list of possible projects. This opportunity is great for groups and art classes!
