Volunteers are vital to the success of the Northville Community Foundation and Maybury Farm and we are grateful for the many volunteers who help us make a difference in our community each year!
Help us care for the working animals on the farm! Chores include
feeding, mucking and cleaning stalls, putting down new bedding,
grooming, blowing and sweeping the barn, fence repair and
GROUNDS & MAINTENANCE
There is always a need for help with keeping the Farm in good repair in many areas including equipment, landscaping, construction, fence repair, etc. People with experience in grounds and equipment repair are a great asset to the Farm. We also need experienced tractor drivers for school farm tours, fall Corn Maze, group rentals and corporate events.
Come and read stories to children and help lead farm-based
activities with them! Each Wednesday & Thursday throughout the
summer Maybury Farm offers Story Time for Kids at 11:00am following
by a time for crafts, songs or engaging with one of our animals and
teaching the kids about their role on the farm. Perfect for those
who enjoy reading and interacting with kids!
The Corn Maze at Maybury Farm runs from September through the last weekend in October and raises funds for the operation of the Farm. Volunteers are needed to help in our Welcome Center, around the Farm, and out in the Maze.
Maybury Farm offers several special events throughout the year to
help raise money for Farm operations. Perfect for those who enjoy
event planning and being part of big event with lots of guests. This
is a great opportunity for those interested in a short-term volunteer
Assist with growing the Maybury Farm garden! Volunteers needed to help with weeding, maintenance, planting, harvesting and putting the garden to bed in the spring, summer and fall.
HOLIDAY HOME TOUR
Join the fun in selecting homes for the tour, finding decorators and
then hosting this marvelous event held annually in November. Or, if
you prefer, volunteer to be a host or hostess in one of the homes
the day of the event. Five beautiful Northville homes are selected
and then decorated for the holidays!
Please note that due to the nature of our work with children and the public, we require full background checks for all non-event volunteers. Background checks are $17 to be paid by the volunteer. Eligible volunteers will receive a follow-up once they have submitted their application with a link to complete and pay for their background check. Fees are not refunded in the event a volunteer does not qualify to volunteer with NCF/Maybury Farm based on the information provided in the background check.
