Volunteering at What Cheer Flower Farm is a great opportunity for people interested in helping out with our everyday farming & floristry tasks on the farm. This may include: weeding, planting, digging, watering, harvesting, trimming and arranging flowers or helping beautify the property. We do have other opportunities we can discuss during orientation.
Can't make it during these times? Looking for tasks that accommodate all abilities? Or perhaps you have a larger group you'd like to organize? Please email us at Operations@WhatCheerFarm.org
Read on below for volunteer opportunity descriptions
Floral Arrangement/Bouquet Help
Members of the floral arrangement and bouquet helpers work exclusively with our flowers. Volunteer options include flowers processing as well. While floristry experience is desired to help preserve the livelihood of the flowers, we welcome volunteers of all skills levels, after completion of required volunteer orientation.
Flower Farming Help
Our flower farming helpers works exclusively in the fields or with seedlings. This is labor-intensive work and you have to be able to bend, stand, weather the elements and lift moderately heavy objects. We like to call flower farming “farm gym” because you are sure to work up a sweat! If you like the outdoors and getting your hands dirty, please sign up to help!
Delivery volunteers help deliver flowers to nonprofits for their clients (vehicle & license required) around the state of Rhode Island. Looking to take a nice drive out to South County, Bristol, or around Providence? This volunteer opportunity is for you!
Clerical, Administrative, and Fundraising Help
Volunteers of this type help with mailings, office paperwork, and other administrative duties needed at the Farm. If you have experience in fundraising, have ideas that could help the farm, or would like to host a fundraiser on behalf of the farm, please let us know!
