Work With Us

One of the best ways to experience Peacehaven is to dig in the soil and get your hands dirty at one of our Garden Workdays. Held Saturday mornings from 9-11 from April through October, you can choose your dates and register below.

This volunteer role provides assistance to our residential staff and allows the volunteer to gain perspective in serving those with intellectual and developmental disabilities––most importantly through building relationships with Peacehaven’s residents. We have several volunteer opportunities, including:

Peacehaven strives to be a healthy community, and physical exercise is an important routine for our residents. We consistently travel to the Alamance County Community YMCA to workout, and volunteers would be welcomed to accompany and join in these outings. We also invite volunteers to bring physical activity to the farm. Some previous examples of this have included: hiking, yoga, recreational games, and circuit-training.

We love to gather around our farm table and share meals with our friends and neighbors. We enjoy exploring new healthy recipes and using our fresh produce to make delicious food. Volunteers are welcome to join us to participate in a meal, or to cook or bake alongside our core members.

Peacehaven values creativity, and one expression of this is our arts and crafts programs. We have an active Fiber Arts program with volunteers who meet regularly to create various wool products, including felted soaps and holiday decorations. Our Core Members also delight in creating poems, short stories, and thank you cards. This program has been incredibly meaningful in helping our Core Members learn how to express their thoughts and feelings.

The vast majority of our funding comes from people like you! Individual donations help us maintain our programs and dream about the future. We also receive grants from foundations and organizations throughout the year. Grant funding is growing as quickly as the resources in education, agriculture, and technology that we provide. As we cultivate new partnerships, our opportunities to apply for new, exciting, and impactful grants bloom as well.

If you have an idea, pursuit, or passion that you would like to bring to our community, we would love to hear more. We are always looking for volunteers who can take the lead on facilitating a specific program. 

Please complete and submit the interest form below. Once received, a member of our staff will get back to you shortly for next steps.

A group gathers in Greensboro every week to work with our fiber art program and to develop products that our core members can create and market. They process the wool first by skirting, cleaning and dying it. Then they card it and either felt or spin it in preparation for crafting it into items for sale.

If you are interested in joining this group, please contact

Peacehaven holds special events throughout the year where volunteers are needed to help with hospitality, parking, set up, and clean up.
