Group + Corporate Events

Groups of 10 or more people are welcome to schedule volunteer events. We need at least two weeks notice to accommodate your group. To schedule, please email info@fullcirclesunnyvale.org

Outreach & Events

Are you a people person? Then this is the job for you! Help us spread the word about the farm by talking to people and answering questions at off-site outreach events.

The farm will organize several events each year. We need dedicated individuals to help plan these events, as well as helping out with promotion, logistics and activities. All of our events are 100% volunteer-planned and hosted, and we always need LOTS of help!

Construction/Labor

Once in a while we have a big project that needs lots of heavy work. Email info@fullcirclesunnyvale.org to get involved and offer some of your skills!
