Volunteers are vital at Gorman Heritage Farm. We need your help, and in return will provide you with ways to find personal fulfillment, creative outlets and the opportunity to serve your community, all in a fun, healthy environment. Anyone can volunteer at Gorman Heritage Farm, because there is something here for everyone! Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult while volunteering.
WAYS TO GET INVOLVED
There are many individual and group volunteer opportunities at the Farm, including clerical/administrative, photography, gardening, animal care, painting, lawn care, general maintenance, trail upkeep, fence building, cleaning, even professional opportunities to provide probono services.

Harness Club – Our mule and mini horse teams serve the Greater Cincinnati community by offering carriage rides for the elderly, disabled persons and underprivileged children as well as participate in many community events and parades. Come join the fun by caring for them at the Farm or helping at events and parades.
Beekeepers – Join our beekeepers who meet weekly to maintain the health of our hives. They love to share their knowledge with hardworking volunteers who want to learn about this interesting hobby and welcome beekeepers of all levels.
Quilters – On Wednesday evenings, our quilters gather at the Farm to work on their own fabric art and then work together for several months to create a gorgeous common quilt that is raffled off in the Fall.
Evening Garden Group – On Wednesday evenings, a group of gardening volunteers gather at the Farm to take care of our Front, Woodland and Rain Gardens from March until November. Enjoy the therapeutic quiet and work with your hands with other likeminded volunteers.
Weekly Potluck Volunteer Lunch – Thursdays are fun days with volunteers working in our Children’s, Flower, Educational and Market Gardens, helping in the Farmyard or doing general fix-it projects. Then at noon, staff and volunteers stop to gather around a potluck lunch. Come work, meet other volunteers and then commune over a meal.
Events – We have several fundraisers throughout the year and are always looking for assistance with set-up, admissions, activities and clean-up. In October, we will need tractor drivers for our hayrides. Let us know if you are available to help with our fun events.
