Volunteering & Tours

We are happy to welcome volunteers and tours to Toledo GROWs!  All volunteers and visitors are required to follow current health and safety guidelines by monitoring for symptoms of illness, wearing masks, and keeping distance from others.

To inquire about volunteering call 419-720-8714.

Individual Volunteers

When: Every Wednesday, March through October (November through February, call ahead to ask if help is needed that week)
Time: 9:00 a.m. until noon
Where: Toledo GROWs urban farm, 900 Oneida Street, Toledo, OH 43608

We will be expecting you, so no need to call in advance. Bring or wear clothes you can get dirty, gloves, and drinks or snacks you may need. No matter your level of gardening experience, you can help in the garden beds, in the greenhouses, and all around the property growing and cultivating food!

Volunteers aged 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

Groups of Volunteers

Volunteer groups are also welcome, and important to our mission. To make arrangements for a group, contact Toledo GROWs at 419-720-8714 at least two weeks in advance. We can work together to find a time that fits best for both Toledo GROWs and your group.

Tours of the Urban Farm

We welcome the opportunity to show you our urban farm! Individuals or groups should call 419-720-8714 to schedule a one-hour tour of the facility and learn about the work of Toledo GROWs. A donation of $3 per person is requested for tours. Note: this is an urban farmstead and the site may be muddy.
