Volunteer on the Farm

Students, faculty, staff and community members are all welcome to come volunteer on the Farm! All that is required is a willingness to dig in and to learn on the farm. During the winter months, our need for volunteers diminishes. We welcome volunteers May through October. 

Volunteers of all ages and skill levels are welcome. Please wear closed-toe or sturdy shoes, and bring sun protection and a water bottle. Youth under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Those interested in volunteering should contact our AmeriCorps member, Mary Lemmon, at lemmonmary726@gmail.com. 

Getting to the Farm

The One-Acre Student Farm is located on Penn State’s northern campus at the intersection of Big Hollow Road and Fox Hollow Road (just before the underpass for 322). The farm is easily accessible from campus by bicycle or by car. If biking or walking to the farm from main campus, please use Big Hollow Road to safely travel to the farm.

Food, Farm and Fun!

Thank you to our many volunteers who have helped us make the farm beautiful. We’ve grown friendships, experiences and even some veggies! 

Without volunteer efforts, the Student Farm would not be as successful or impactful. For your passion and enthusiasm, we thank you!
