Gather New Haven embraces volunteers to get work done together!

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!

Happy Spring! Many of Gather New Havens’ volunteer opportunities open up in the spring, as we look for volunteers to help out on with our farms, gardens, and programs.

Refer to the volunteer openings on this page to see what kind of work there is to do with us, our regular shifts are listed in the shift calendar below. For longer term volunteer commitment or large groups you can contact us at

Read what our volunteers say about working with us:

“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’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.”

“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.”

“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.”
