- What We Do
Tryon Life Community Farm grows community learning while preserving common green space, restoring native ecosystems, and demonstrating sustainable urban density living.
- Opportunities for service with us
Our Sustainability Education Center and Demonstration Farm has a variety of opportunities for someone interested in service and who wants to get involved with a local non-profit organization.
Here are some of the opportunities available and ways you can plug into the farm; however, this is a dynamic place and there are many ways you could get involved. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or would like more info.
The Hands-On Sustainability Youth Education Program:
- Become a volunteer educator who leads farm tours for student and youth groups on the land.
- Coordinate groups visiting the farm for hands-on tours and activities
- Assist with program outreach through tabling, contacting groups who may be interested from PCC or other local colleges and schools.
The TLC Farm Communications Group:
- Be an ambassador to the Portland community at large by doing outreach for the farm and our Youth Education Program at sustainability-related and community events.
- If interested, work on new outreach materials for a variety of our programs.
Community Work Parties:
- Do you like working outside? TLC Farm hosts regular Saturday work parties open to the public that are great opportunities to help out while learning a ton about something you're interested in; whether you've been wanting to do some natural building, tool maintenance or repair, or try your hand at building a chicken tractor, these are some fun ways to get involved.
- If you are more interested in the logistics of running a not-for-profit organization, there are many ways to plug in here and learn new skills.
Work Schedule: The farm is open to the public Tuesday-Sunday (closed Mondays). The Campus-Community Ambassador could begin working out of the TLC Office on Tuesdays or Thursdays this spring while getting oriented, and then their work schedule could be flexible based on their needs and what work would need supervision. Some work could definitely be done off-site.
