We are committed to making our volunteer events as accessible as possible. Please reach out to our team with any questions, concerns, or needs prior to the event. If you are not attending this event due to accessibility concerns, please let us know. We welcome your feedback.
The 21 Acres farm is not ADA-accessible. The roads are unpaved, and the ground can be uneven. Our LEED-certified education center is ADA-accessible. There is an elevator in the building that goes to the second-floor restrooms. While our restrooms are not all-gender, we invite all guests to use the restroom that aligns with their needs.
Safety is our priority. If existing or anticipated conditions pose a moderate to high risk to volunteers and staff, we will cancel volunteer activities.
In the event of cancellation, registered volunteers will be informed of cancellations by the Volunteer Coordinator as soon as possible. Please make sure that the email and phone number you provide during registration are accurate.
