Fletcher Academy Farm

“For the winter months I am looking for volunteers interested in helping us prepare for fruit tree and small fruit plantings. It’s also a great time to connect and let us know if you are interested in helping on the farm in any other way. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box and let’s brainstorm ways to incorporate your specific interests and talents at the farm – there are so many ways to get involved that aren’t limited to just planting and weeding. I would be thrilled to have people who would be willing to share their knowledge/experience with the students. Perhaps you’d like to test recipes with our produce that could be included in our CSA baskets, or make decorative plant identification markers if you have an artistic bent. Maybe you’d like to oversee a project start-up, coordinate outreach donations, or be a recruiter for our volunteer program…these are a few ideas – but don’t be limited by them. We want to involve you in  the ministry of Fletcher Academy Farm!”

Why become a Pioneer?

In the schools and ministries of Fletcher Academy, Pioneer volunteers serve alongside faculty/staff and students, as connections are made, relationships are built, and blessings are shared.

Our Pioneers volunteers are a vital part of our “community on a mission” and experience gratitude, connection, and caring as they serve in varied roles. We are thankful for our Pioneers who are using their talents and their time in support of the ministries of Fletcher Academy.

Pioneers are recognized frequently, invited to special volunteer appreciation events, receive special Pioneer apparel and badging, and are presented with new and changing opportunities to serve.

The Fletcher Academy Farm is growing and needs volunteers like you!

“Those who have led out as pioneers in establishing [Fletcher Academy] have been actuated by a spirit of philanthropy…does the reader feel impressed to answer this call?”

– Sidney Brownsberger, past President, c. 1914
