An essential aspect of Awali’s programming and philosophy is community service. Volunteer workdays are one of the primary ways we offer community service opportunities. During volunteer workdays, individuals or groups receive training at one of our farm sites where they develop farming skills. The information taught at each session is based on the season and activities therein and is pulled from our curriculum. At the end of each workday, volunteers are encouraged to harvest food free of charge, based on need and availability. Community workdays happen quarterly at the beginning of each season.
