CEI Freetown Farm & CCC Market Farm Harvesting Program
Fridays 9:00am -11:00am for CCC Specific Volunteering
CCC folks are also welcome to sign up for any open volunteer shift they see outside of this specific opportunity—we’d love to have anyone interested come by during our other open windows (Wednesdays and Saturdays). Location: Freetown Farm, 8000 Harriet Tubman Ln, Columbia, MD 21044
Volunteers will get the opportunity to help out in our garden areas with plant care, beautification, and harvesting for donations to CCC.
How to register:
If you have never volunteered with CEI before, please register via our volunteer management system, Better Impact, and fill out our volunteer application. You will need to create a username and password with an email associated with it, answer some basic personal information questions, and additional optional questions around your interests and demographics.
Specific to CCC Volunteers:
When answering the questions “What group are you volunteering with?”, please answer Columbia Community Care in order to view specific volunteer opportunities for your organization. Once registered (or if you already have a Better Impact profile), navigate to your MyImpact homepage; here, you will find the “Opportunities” tab, where you can view our open volunteer opportunities in a calendar or list format. Just click on one of the shifts and select “Sign Up”; make sure to note it in your own calendar, as our system will only send you a reminder a week in advance.
CCC volunteers, please visit the volunteer page of CEI’s website, which also contains CEI’s volunteer handbook—a helpful resource prepared to orient folks to volunteering with CEI. Please email email@example.com with any questions/concerns you might have.
