To comply with COVID-19 social distancing guidelines, we cannot accommodate volunteers. We look forward to having you volunteer in the future and we will update this page when volunteer opportunities become available. Thank you for your interest!

Want to run a food drive to help us out in the meantime? Visit our Donate page. Otherwise, keep reading for volunteer opportunities with our partners!

Nicoya Farm is a family fruit and vegetable farm, managed by Aviva Asher and Daniel Robleto on 2.5 acres of land in Southeast Gainesville. We work to build healthy soil and use intensive, regenerative farming practices to grow nutritious crops on our small market farm.

Our farm is located at 2202 SE 27th St, Gainesville, 32641, which is a ten minute drive from downtown Gainesville. Turn into the dirt driveway (address is posted on street) and immediately pull into the parking area on the right hand side. Daniel can be reached at 352-792-7178 if you have questions or have trouble finding the farm.

Join us at our farm to plant, harvest and care for our crops while learning about all aspects of a sustainable farm! We can host volunteers Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday mornings between 8am- 12pm. Please email or call to arrange a time to volunteer. We welcome individual volunteers and volunteer groups to join us in a variety of tasks on the farm from harvesting to planting to weeding to special projects. For groups, we offer hands-on instruction and a Q and A with the farmers as well as opportunities for tasting and reflection. For individuals, we welcome regular or one- time volunteers. We ask volunteers to wear close-toed shoes and bring hats, sunscreen, water (we have well water on site) and wear appropriate work clothing. We like to send volunteers home with some produce from the farm and we offer regular work- trade positions on the farm for anyone interested in volunteering one day a week in exchange for a harvest share (get in touch to find out more about this opportunity).

We ask that all volunteers and visitors wear masks while at the farm and we will do the same. We have a sink for hand washing.
