Growing to Give
The Cobblestone Project is grateful for all of our wonderful volunteers who help us with a variety of tasks from farm work to community events. We Rely On Volunteer Support To Help Us Maintain Our Farm and have opportunities for everyone!
April-October we need 3-5 people once a week so help mow our green space.
DEER FENCE MAINTENANCE
We harvest primarily on Fridays. A group of 8-10 volunteers might recover 2,000 pounds of fresh, highly nutritious fruits and vegetables, yielding 6,000 servings for hungry people nearby. Harvest volunteers also benefit the environment: by preventing that ton of produce from degrading in the field or in a landfill reduces future greenhouse gas emissions by the equivalent of keeping one car off the roads for a year. The work is simple physical labor, usually picking and lifting fruits and vegetables of weights ranging from blackberries to cabbage.
Have a green thumb? Let Cobblestone be your garden oasis! We need up to 15 volunteers all year to help grow and maintain our row crops, hoop houses and greenhouse.
Operation SAVE is Cobblestone Project's veteran work therapy program. We have partnered with the Veteran's Healthcare System of the Ozarks to get our veterans back in the workforce!

Corporate Team building Days
Share a day on the farm with your co-workers! Cobblestone offers Corporate Team Building days that bring groups of co-workers together on our community farm to serve their community and increase group cohesion in the process. During Corporate Team Building Days, The Cobblestone staff will lead your group in team-building activities, educational games, a farm tour, and agricultural work.
The Cobblestone Project is always seeking individuals with certain specialized skills to serve as consultants and provide services as needed for the program. Our farm has a lot of different moving parts (literally!), and we need you to help us keep them going! We are always looking for carpenters, welders, mechanics, plumbers, and AC/Heating Technicians. If you have one of the skills listed above or another specialized skill that you would like to share with us, we would love to hear from you!
