Is your workplace looking to help out in the community and interested in doing some volunteer work? Consider helping out at WindReach Farm!
We have had many different work groups come to WindReach to help us with general clean up and farm chores, as well as to help us prepare for any special events we have. There is no minimum number of participants, and we have accommodated as many as 60 people.
A typical day runs from approximately 9 am – 3 pm, and includes a welcome/overview, morning chores, lunch break, and afternoon chores.
We do charge $10 per person which helps cover the cost of supplies we may need to purchase in order for your group to do their chores. It also helps cover our administration costs. Groups typically book a day in late spring, summer, or fall to enjoy the outdoors at WindReach Farm.
If you are interested in hearing more about this, or to book a Corporate Work Day, please contact the Volunteer and Operations Manager at 905-655-5827 ext. 225 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
“I volunteered with this opportunity because I have a personal connection. My cousin has autism so sometimes he has trouble socializing with other people and opportunities like this are a great opportunity to interact with animals and do basic farm work. I think it's something that he really relishes.”
— Dave Butts, Honda Canada
"WindReach has a very special place in my heart, and I have been so blessed to be able to share our volunteer experience with so many of my colleagues year after year. Our Rogers team can’t wait to come back every year. People start asking me in March every year when we are planning to go back. The teams get so much joy from a hard day’s labour in the fresh air and a sense of accomplishment from the small contribution they can give.
