We invite you to volunteer your time and skills to the causes of regenerative agriculture and community-held farms.

Volunteer with an Individual Agrarian Commons

Each Agrarian Commons is an individual entity comprised of board members, working farms, nonprofits, and community stakeholders that are working together.

If you are called to this work, and would like to find a volunteer or internship opportunity with a specific Agrarian Commons, please visit the individual Commons pages and contact them directly

Thank you for considering working with the Agrarian Commons. Your contribution helps to bring a revolutionary model of land ownership to communities across the country.

Farm and Food Businesses working with the Agrarian Commons

There are many organizations, food businesses and land trusts working with each individual Agrarian Commons.  Get to know your local Agrarian Commons and the local partners they are working with in order to find great opportunities.  As each Agrarian Commons grows, the local community of farms and food businesses that surround them are standing up in solidarity, spreading awareness, and raising funds to support access, tenure, and equity in their region.

Partner Organizations with Great Opportunities


US Food Sovereignty Alliance

The US Food Sovereignty Alliance works to end poverty, rebuild local food economies, and assert democratic control over the food system. USFSA believes all people have the right to healthy, culturally appropriate food, produced in an ecologically sound manner. Agrarian Trust is a member of the USFSA, and is also their fiscal sponsor as well. 



Agrarian Trust is proud fiscal sponsor of Futurefarmers, a group of diverse practitioners aligned through an interest in making work that is relevant to the time and place surrounding us. Founded in 1995, the design studio serves as a platform to support art projects, an artist in residence program and our research interests. We are artists, designers, architects, anthropologists, writers and farmers with a common interest in creating frameworks for exchange that catalyze moments of “not knowing”.


Writing the Land

Writing the Land is calling for poets! With support from Agrarian Trust and other partnered land trusts, Writing the Land coordinates poets to “adopt” a conserved property, partnering them with that respective land trust for the calendar year. Poets will visit these adopted properties and then create poems inspired by the land.
