join our volunteer corps

We invite you to be a part of the first Honoré Volunteer Corps! Share in the important work that Honoré Farm and Mill provides to communities in the SF area and in its emerging reach throughout the country.

There are a variety of unique volunteer opportunities to suit your interests and rewards for all participants. Volunteers will have the opportunity to work with their hands in the fields to grow and harvest heirloom grains, to work in the kitchen to prepare delicious Honoré cookies, to package and ship Honoré products, and to be educators that travel with the Mobile Mill to advocate and demonstrate the growing and milling heirloom of grains.

So, don’t wait! Join now. We look forward to hearing from you.
