2019-2020 Year of Volunteer Service

Plowshare Farm is seeking candidates for a yearlong volunteer service opportunity in sharing life with others, including people with developmental disabilities, and sustainability at our lifesharing community in Greenfield, New Hampshire. We are currently accepting applicants for the August 2019 to August 2020 service year (beginning August 23, 2019). Serve for a year and gain insights for a lifetime!

We are seeking people with:

  • hearts wide enough to include others in 'home'
  • hands and feet ready to support others in activities of daily life and to be a part of a sustainability-oriented community
  • and heads ripe for new learning

As a volunteer you will:

  • Live in and provide assistance with daily needs in one of our lifesharing homes where people with a wide range of abilities, including people with disabilities, live together in an inclusive community-based setting. This includes sharing general household activities, supporting others in the household in activities of daily living, and sharing in social time together.
  • Participate in 2-3 areas of volunteer service during the day, depending on the community's current need and personal interest, such as wool and fiber arts, woodworking, baking, and biodynamic gardening.
  • Learn about the traditional trades of the New England region (woodwork, pottery, metalwork, wax, wool, baking and more).
  • Be part of a community that is striving toward ecological sustainability (energy production and heating, growing our own vegetables, getting milk and eggs from our own animals, tapping maple trees for syrup, etc).
