Volunteer on the Farm!
Volunteer at Healing Ponds Farm

Come get dirty and learn some stuff.

There’s always a lot of work to do on a farm, more than can ever get done. We’re no exception. So, if you want to help out, read on!

When should I come?

Volunteers are welcome on our farm Sundays and Wednesdays, occasionally Mondays and Thursdays too. Email ahead of time so we can coordinate.

  • Write to healingponds@gmail.com

Also, tell us about yourself!

  • What would you like to learn?
  • What are your expectations?
  • When are you available?

As for location, we’re in Buxton, about 25 miles west of Beaverton on Highway 26. We’ll give you directions when you call.

What should I bring?

Please wear boots, and be prepared for physical work. Also, bear in mind this is a farm in progress. The work can be wet, dirty or uncomfortable. That said, it’s also quite pretty, with flowing streams, lots of animals and green pastures.

Where tasks are concerned, we have lots of different chores to choose from. We keep cows, goats, sheep, poultry and bees; we also garden, work around the land and do permaculture projects.

What can I expect?

  • Learn things you didn’t know
  • Gain skills you can use in other places
  • Help a local farm in your community
  • Do some good hard work, get in shape!
  • Learn how to be more self-sufficient

Thanks for your help; we look forward to meeting you!

  1. I found you guys on craigslist. I want to move to Oregon but don’t have anything set up as far as living and work. I am very interested in coming and working on the farm. I have many things I have learned that I could bring to the table so to speak. I have a lot of woodworking experience and gardening experience from my family buisiness and recreation. My parents have always put food and hard work first and foremost in our life. I can’t wait to hear back and hope that we may build a future however long or short it is.

  2. I also saw your craigslist ad and have just read through all the information about the farm- especially all about the animals. Would you take two interns? Such an incredibly beautiful and successful farm. I hope to visit in the near future before winter sets in and potentially have the opportunity to work with you.
