Thanks for your interest in volunteering with ASAP! Browse our website to see the scope of our work, then let us know what appeals to you using the volunteer interest form below. If you’re looking for a longer term volunteer position, check out our internship program. Please note that most of our projects are indoors and are better suited for individuals and not large groups.

Volunteer for the Farm Tour

2016 Farm Tour: Volunteer for ASAP’s Farm Tour on June 25 or 26 and receive a FREE tour pass to use on the day you aren’t volunteering! Volunteers will spend one afternoon from 12-5 pm greeting visitors at one of the participating farms. New volunteers are required to attend a volunteer orientation the week before the tour. Sign up to volunteer for the Farm Tour here.

Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities

Farmers Market Photography: Wonder how we get all of that great information for our weekly tailgate market reports? Volunteers, like you, combined with farmers, friends, and market vendors give us reports and photos of local products at Appalachian Grown farmers markets.  Take weekly notes and photos at local markets and help us report what’s fresh and in season each month! Contact robin@asapconnections.org to learn more and find a market near you.

Local Food and Farm Crafts: If you are you 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 paper weights for events tabling, produce/farmer costumes, head in the hole cutouts, table runners, games, and more. Contact robin@asapconnections.org for more information and check out our list of possible projects. Great for groups and art classes!
