    Overview

    Pony Power is expanding its programs and looking for Farm Crew/Garden Volunteers. We need both individuals and groups to help with some projects.

    Below is a listing of various opportunities.

    Garden Volunteers** - We are building an interactive garden for our participants to learn of farming, composting, and harvesting. The goal is to have a fully functioning garden for farm to table education.

    Fence Painters* - We have newly constructed paddock fencing that needs to be stained.

    Trail Keepers - We are constructing a sensory trail and volunteers are needed for basic clean-up and maintenance of the trail.

    Paddock Cleaners -Volunteers are needed for basic clean-up of horse turn out paddocks.

    Tack Cleaners - Volunteers are needed for deep cleaning and conditioning of horse tack. Red

    Barn Cleaners - Volunteers are needed for cleaning/maintenance of Pony Power’s Red Barn. Currently, two horses reside in our red barn and it is used for our non-riding programs.

    Recycling Volunteers - Volunteers are needed for organizing Pony Power’s recyclable waste.

    Construction/Interior Finishing Volunteers* - The classroom in the Pony Power Red Barn needs to have final construction/interior decorating completed.

    ** Establishment of garden can be a 1-day long project completed by a group and then individual volunteers will be needed for maintenance.

    * One day project ideal for a group.

    Volunteers will work under the direct supervision of our Facilities Manager and an orientation/training is required. All shifts and projects will be scheduled through the Facilities Manager - typically between 9:00 AM and 2:00 PM.
