South Coast Stewards Volunteer Program

Stewards Banner

If you have ever wanted to dip your toes into small farming, we have an opportunity for you! We are now recruiting for new volunteers to be added to our South Coast Steward team!

What would a South Coast Steward do?

Primarily our workdays are held on Mondays and Fridays, generally 8:30-11:30am. We do occasionally have events or workshops that fall on weekends, but those days are limited. As South Coast REC begins to establish its new small farm and nursery to help support public education and vocational training programs, Steward volunteers will have vital roles in helping to establish new no-till vegetable plots, new groves and orchards, and help with propagating and transplanting plants in the greenhouse. Most of our activities are hands on, and could include periods of lifting, stooping, etc. There are also occasions throughout the year where Stewards are recruited to help with the wide range of public education programs we deliver to youth and adults all over Southern California. It's an exciting time to join the team, we hope to see you here!

Here are the details:

• Volunteers must be 18 years of age and complete a Livescan background check

• There is a two-year commitment to volunteering with the South Coast Stewards

• Volunteers must complete required training and at least 50 hours of service annually
