Volunteers Needed for EcoBloom 2019!

This spring, the DPS Hub Farm is hosting another year of EcoBloom, a field trip designed for 5th grade DPS students!

All 5th grade students from 12 DPS Schools will be coming out to participate from early March to mid May and we need volunteers to help run the show! Each day, there will be up to 100 students out at the farm. Students will be broken into small groups of 10-12 and will visit each self-guided activity throughout the day. We are in need of volunteers to manage self-led farm stops, facilitate groups around the farm, and guide students around the property. If you are interested in facilitating a station or activity, we’d love your help too!

Raindates are reserved for trips that get cancelled due to weather and will be updated as necessary. You may sign up to volunteer for a raindate, just know the field trip may not run. 

Volunteers will need to be available between 8:30am-1:30pm on each day of volunteering, however the exact times vary by trip. We will offer two volunteer trainings at the farm prior to the first EcoBloom date (date TBD).

Durham Public Schools requires that all non-student volunteers complete an online application prior to working on the farm.
