Dakota City's Autumn Harvest

Thank you for volunteering at Dakota City for 2021 Autumn Harvest!

Scroll down to find the volunteer station and date you are interested in. Look to the right and if the spot is available there will be a "Sign-up" box to click on. Complete the information asked for and you'll be all set! An email confirmation of your volunteer shift will be sent to you.

Families and groups can sign up to volunteer together! If you choose to do so, please include the names of everyone in your group in the "Comment" section of the sign-up form.

Volunteers may wear:

  • old-fashioned or simple farming clothes such as jeans, flannel shirts, cotton dresses, etc.
  • a family-friendly Halloween costume
  • a Dakota City volunteer t-shirt (provided by the Dakota City office)

Volunteers must be 16 or older to work by themselves. If under 16, we ask that a parent, guardian, or other responsible volunteer work with them.

Plan to arrive promptly at 12:45 PM (12:30 PM for Admissions volunteers) to assure enough time for check-in and setup at your station.

If you have any questions or comments, please call our office at 651-460-8050 or send us an email at [email protected]
