Are you interested in helping create a strong, vibrant, local food system?
Consider volunteering with New Entry! We welcome new volunteers who bring energy, creativity, knowledge, and fun to our work. We strive to build relationships with our volunteers so that we may learn from one another. Our dedicated volunteers are vital to the success of our programs and our work transforming the food system, in New England and beyond.
Here are some ways you can get involved:
- Become a CSA share packer- generally Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday mornings May-October
- Become a License Plate Advocate- year-round, can easily accomodate varying schedules
- Join one of our incubator farmers as a Farm Volunteer- assist farmers with planting, caring for, and harvesting fields with the potential to help with post-harvest handling as well. Schedule will depend on farmers' needs, generally April-November
- Join us or bring your group for an on-the-farm project- we welcome school and professional groups March-November
- Other ideas- what do you bring to the table? How would you like to get involved? Let us know!
Fill out a Volunteer Inquiry Form today to support New Entry in building a resilient, regional food system.
We welcome all people who want to learn more about the food system to join us in volunteer roles. We are excited to work with you as we all become more knowledgeable and engaged in our local food system. Thank you for letting us be part of your food journey, wherever it began and wherever it may end.

Boston University Volunteer Group organizing our reusable produce bins at the New Entry Food Hub. These are the bins that our farmers use on a daily basis to deliver our fresh, local, organic produce for CSA shares. When they are organized, our food hub runs smoothly!
