Help out at The Plant
Public Volunteer Program
This program is for anyone interested in helping out at The Plant on a casual basis.
**JUST ADDED** We are now seeking volunteers for our seasonal farmers markets. Email us at volunteer[at]plantchicago.com for more details.
Anyone can help out on Public Volunteer Days every Tuesday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Volunteers who work all day are invited to join us for a free lunch, with vegetarian options available. To participate, the only thing you need to do is email us at volunteer[at]plantchicago.com and let us know you’re coming. Volunteers should arrive at The Plant at least five minutes before each shift. Just ring the doorbell when you arrive and you’ll be told what to do by one of our Volunteer Leaders. Safety waivers are required; you can download it here and bring one with you or fill it out when you arrive.
The Plant’s staff is extremely small and this means that we cannot always accept volunteer groups of more than five people. Please know that we’re extremely grateful for the offers of help from large groups, but will need advance notice to determine the best fit for the group.
If you have a group of five people or large, please email us at volunteer[at]plantchicago.com to see if there are upcoming projects we can put you to work on. Thanks!
