Combining Education with Production to Empower the Future
A Frenchtown School District Partnership
Follow us on Facebook:
We want you involved. We're always looking for passionate people to come learn what we're all about - as volunteers, consultants and students (of any age!).
Right now in our life cycle, the most helpful thing you can do for us, is give. If you're able to give financially, consider a tax-deductible donation. It would sincerely help us out. A lot.
If you're not able to donate, but still want to contribute, we're always looking for volunteers. If no specific volunteer days are outlined below (or if you're unable to make the set date) we still want to work with you. Reach out to us directly to set up a time and activity that works for you.
Have other ideas about how to become part of the Freedom community? We're always interested in connecting. Contact us any time.
Upcoming Volunteer Days
We are excited to open our greenhouse to volunteers the first Tuesday of each month from 5:00pm - 7:00pm. If you are interested in volunteering, please give us at least 24 hours advanced notice by emailing us at email@example.com. We request you commit to a minimum of 45 minutes with us if coming to volunteer, though you are welcome (and encouraged!) to stay the full two hours.
