VOLUNTEER WITH GNH

We welcome volunteers to help us in our farms, community gardens and preserves as well as with other organizational needs (communications, events, etc.)!

We are currently updating our automated volunteer management system.

 In the meantime, email volunteer@gathernewhaven.org if you want to volunteer or have any questions.

 Also sign up for our newsletter to get updates.

Thank you for your interest!

Gather New Haven exists because of volunteers like you who want to be a part of something great. Whether it’s getting your hands in the dirt, assisting with one of our programs, or sharing other skills such as graphic design or social media expertise, there’s a place for everyone to contribute and be part of our Gather New Haven community!

Our online listing of volunteer opportunities is temporarily unavailable. If you want to volunteer or have any questions you can contact us at volunteer@gathernewhaven.org.

Due to COVID 19, we are unable to offer any special volunteer days for large groups at the moment. 

Before showing up to volunteer, make sure you’ve completed our volunteer waiver.

We encourage you to sign up for our email list. You will then receive any updates regarding new volunteer opportunities and other events happening with Gather New Haven.

“As a recent arrival to New Haven, I have been welcomed with open arms on Gather New Haven’s’ sites and been privileged to be part of this gem of a community that helps so many people and the environment.”

“It is enormously rewarding to help our participants choose a better and healthier life style, starting from the very basics: good healthy food. Both participants and volunteers can see (and taste) how real food looks like, right where it is grown, which is a rare opportunity. I like the fact that the program doesn’t give participants a diet to follow for a few weeks, but teaches them how to make long-term changes that can really make a difference. I didn’t know what to expect when I started, but everybody was really welcoming and every time I just easily find my duties for the day and always feel part of a winning team.”

“It’s a privilege to volunteer with Gather New Haven’s Farm Based Wellness program! It’s literally and figuratively a breath of fresh air. I get to run around with youngins, distract them from their parents (who are putting in real work), practice Spanish, and connect to the future young leaders of the city as the sun sets over the water… Though I know the program is aimed at helping the participants, it has helped ME, as a volunteer, fall further in love with this city and its people.”

“Volunteering for Gather New Haven gives me the opportunity to give back to the community while providing me with organic farming knowledge! It is exciting to meet other volunteers and farming mentors as we work together toward the same goal.”
