Slow Food Volunteers
Village Exchange Center launched Village Farm in 2020, during the peak of the pandemic, to promote economic development and opportunities while tackling food insecurity. Located on a one-acre site, Village Farm is a green jewel in urban Aurora. Situated atop a “brownfield”, a former industrial site, the above-ground gardens beds provide space where Aurora’s immigrant and refugee communities can grow food and community. We work to increase access to fresh and culturally relevant produce while serving as a gathering space for cultural exchange, education, and celebration. The farm transcends socio-economic, geographic, and cultural differences to connect diverse communities to each other and the natural world. None of this would be possible without the support of volunteers!
Volunteers will learn how to grow high quality produce from our farmers, give back to the Aurora community, and enjoy the fresh air. Volunteers may help with harvesting produce, weeding beds and pathways, watering plants, organizing and cleaning tools and sheds, working with compost, helping with construction projects, and other tasks.
