MUSC student volunteering in the Urban Farm

Opportunities on the MUSC Urban Farm

Students, staff, and community members are encouraged to become involved in the Urban Farm as active participants.

Friends of the Farm

Everyone is welcome to attend volunteer work and learn opportunities at the Urban Farm. Friends of the Farm are individuals and groups who visit the farm during scheduled sessions to participate in hands-on learning about sustainable urban agricultural practices, nutrition, or other relevant topics. No prior experience is necessary.
