Recurring Events

Second Saturday Community Farm Work Days
Every Second Saturday of the month 10am – 12pm @ 235 Northside Drive

Sustaining a farm is hard work, and Williams Farm would not be the same without all the time and support volunteers like you provide! Come volunteer on the second Saturday of every month to help keep Williams Farm operating at its full potential. Get outside, get your hands dirty, and help contribute to an invaluable community resource! All are welcome, and no previous gardening or farming experience is required.

Located just two miles from downtown Athens, the Williams Farm is an oasis in the city. ALT staff, community members, and volunteers work together to grow produce, flowers, and herbs for our weekly farmers markets, CSA program, donations to local food banks and soup kitchens. Williams Farm hopes to grow and market healthy affordable food to residents and businesses in the community, serve as a model of sustainable farming, and provide employment and skill-building opportunities for youth in the community. 

West Broad Farmers Market Setup/ Break Down
Every Saturday, (April – Dec.), 7:30 am for Setup; 1 pm for Breakdown @ 1573 West Broad Street

West Broad Farmers Market is a community-driven, education-oriented, weekly farmers market that supports local economic development & community wellness. We need volunteers to assist with set-up, breakdown, and educational programming so WBFM can continue to be an effective community resource.
