Summer 2024 Opportunities for Engagement

Farm, Fresh Air and Fun!

What a wonderful way to spend a Saturday, by connecting with our Mother Earth and getting your hands in the dirt on Global Grace Farms.  We have an opportunity to help with crop tending and harvesting every Saturday this Summer from 9am – 12pm.  This is a great way to spend time with family and friends.  The farm is located at 12 College Farm Road, behind parking lot 98B on Rutgers Cook Campus in New Brunswick.

Can’t make it on a Saturday?  GG Farm has daily volunteer opportunities.  For more info, contact Ashar, Director of GG Farm at GGFarms@interfaithrise.org 

Additionally, we are offering Summer farm shares which can be purchased online. Please visit our Global Grace Marketplace website by clicking on this link for 2024 Summer farm shares.

The farm also has fresh organic eggs (from our resident free-range chickens) on sale for $6/dozen (that’s less than you’ll pay at most supermarkets)!

Connect with the Global Grace Farms community throughout the year!
