Get Your Hands Dirty

By working with your hands you become connected to the farm, each other, and the natural world. Folks leave Crabtree Farms and become farmers, start community gardens, and become “makers and shakers” of the community.



Volunteers learn about sustainable agriculture through hands-on experiences. Volunteering is a great activity for individuals, groups, or families. We always need extra hands on the farm, in the greenhouse, and during field trips and farm events. Contact aclayton@crabtreefarms.org or 423.493.9155 for more information.



Crabtree Farms offers internships during the spring, summer, and fall. Internships are an excellent way to gain real world experience in agriculture and non-profit communication. We can tailor an internship focus to meet the needs and interests of the intern or school, and for students, college credit can be available. Call 423-493-9155 for more information.

Internship Application


WorkShare volunteers commit to sessions (approx. 3 months long) and have a scheduled 3 or 5 hour work day each week — in exchange for a biweekly produce box. There are two WorkShare programs- Urban Farm & Greenhouse. WorkShare interviews are scheduled in January (Greenhouse) February (Urban Farm), April (Greenhouse), May (Urban Farm), July(Greenhouse), August (Urban Farm) and September (Greenhouse).
