Volunteer Opportunities

MOFGA was founded by a group of dedicated volunteers, and we continue to rely on the support of almost 2000 volunteers each year. The collective impact of MOFGA’s volunteer community is awe-inspiring.

There are many opportunities for people to get involved and we greatly appreciate all forms of volunteer support. Without the diverse expertise and unfailing dedication of its volunteers, MOFGA wouldn’t exist.

MOFGA offers opportunities to volunteer throughout the year. Projects span a wide range, from grounds work to orchard maintenance to office work and beyond. We welcome all and acknowledge the important role volunteers play in our organization. Thank you!

Upcoming Volunteer Events

Volunteer at the Common Ground Country Fair!

The Common Ground Country Fair is MOFGA’s annual celebration of rural living featuring 1000-plus exhibitors and speakers, and emphasizing vibrant communities, sustainable living and local economies, while highlighting organic agriculture. This event wouldn’t be possible without the amazing community of volunteers who donate thousands of volunteer hours.

The Fair offers many unique volunteer options, including year-round opportunities as a planning team member. Volunteer shifts at the Fair are posted online in June.

Volunteer Committees and Chapters

Since its inception volunteers have played a vital role in the spirit and success of MOFGA. As the organization has grown over its first 50 years, the types of roles that volunteers play has shifted as the staff, and organization, have grown. There are many ways to interact and meaningfully contribute to various programs year round. One way to participate is by serving on a committee. MOFGA invites volunteers of diverse backgrounds and views to join our committees and offer valuable perspective to our staff as we work toward our strategic impact goals.
