Volunteer Work Party/Alumni Weekend 2020

July 3-5

 8:00 am Friday – 2:00 pm Sunday

No cost – meals included

Want to help out Knoll Farm? Looking for an alternative way to celebrate community and the 4th of July? Do you enjoy working outside with great people? Come join us for Knoll Farm’s annual volunteer work party, re-designed this year to celebrate interdependence!

We need you, and hopefully you need Knoll Farm.  On this special weekend that is also our nation’s birthday, lets celebrate differently by lending a hand and working alongside one another (safely distancing) and by being in service to one another.

Due to COVID-19, we are delaying the opening of all of our programs to July 1. It’s been a long winter and spring, and we’ll need your strength, your friendship, and your sense of community to help the farm rebound and get ready to serve all the people far and wide who love and need Knoll Farm.  Help us in this extraordinary year to get ready and to welcome back joy.

Alumni of our programs and friends of the farm return every spring to help us tackle an important project that will improve our ability to serve others. This year we’ll focus on improving our hiking trail system that starts at the refuge village and winds through beautiful woods and rocky outcropping beyond the mountain yurt through more than 400-acres of terrain that is beloved by our alumni as well as our Mad River valley community. Expect to meet great people, have fun, work hard, be well fed and enjoy the farm through work and giving back.

This is an ideal time for alumni to return to Knoll Farm and to work alongside us and our Mad River Valley community.

We will be adhering to special safety protocol for your visit to the farm that respects and follows the best medical advice for how to be in community at that time.  We expect this protocol to evolve with changing information, and we will adjust our practices as needed to assure everyone’s safety and wellbeing.  We take seriously your health, our health, and the health of this land.
