Volunteering at the Bailey GREENhouse & Urban Farm
If you’re feeling inclined to get your hands dirty and enjoy an afternoon working with plants, then volunteering at Bailey is for you! Due to the fact that this is a largely student-run endeavor, operating hours at Bailey change each semester based on students on the GREENteam (who provide training and supervision) and their class schedules.
Our open volunteer hours for the Spring 2017 semester are:
- Mondays from 3-5 p.m.
- Wednesdays from 9-11 a.m.
- Fridays from 1-3 p.m.
Fall 2017 Volunteer Instructions
Please complete the form below to indicate your availability during our established volunteer hours. You do not have to wait to hear back from us in order to show up. We keep this interest form to make sure that we have tasks assigned during those times for volunteers. If you are not available for the entire shift, that’s okay, however we’d like volunteers to commit to at least 2 hours. Unfortunately, we cannot have volunteers outside of these hours because we don’t always have adequate supervision. We ask that volunteers wear close-toed shoes, bring a water bottle and appropriate outdoor work wear that may get dirty (including sunblock). While most of the work happens under the safety of the hoophouse, we do work outside often! Also, please come prepared to complete physical tasks and do actual work. Volunteering in the GREENhouse is fun, but we need to get our tasks completed as this is a working business at MSU. Please save socializing (which can be distracting) for outside of volunteer hours.
Currently all of our GREENteam crew member positions are filled, but as we have several different ages of students working, every year some graduate and we need to fill their spots. Please check this page again in September 2017 for details on becoming a GREENteam member and an application to fill out. Click here to see our current GREENteam.
