Volunteer Farming Days

The Multifaith Chaplaincy collaborates with Cultivating Community to coordinate Volunteer Work Days at Packard-Littlefield Farm in Lisbon, Maine during the Fall and Short Terms. Volunteers from the Bates community work alongside New American farmers in pairs or groups. Cultivating Community runs a refugee and immigrant training program that empowers New Americans to launch independent farm businesses, to adopt new leadership roles in the community and to attain increased economic independence for themselves and their families.
