Adult Volunteers are extremely important to the wellbeing of the farm. Whether it be supporting Arion by giving tours to families or groups; helping feed, water or clean the animal pens; therapeutic rider support, baking, craft making or musical entertainment… the options are unlimited!
Volunteering is much like a real job and requires commitment. Individuals must be able to work independently and complete required tasks for a set period of time.
For those seeking a farm experience but who require social, physical or behavioural support, please see Arion Therapeutic Farm Memberships (funding may be available.) Becoming a monthly member can help us feed and rehabilitate our precious farm animal friends. Individual membership is just $149 per year.
Your gift of time enables us to offer more engaging and fun farm activities to our visitors and families.
How to apply:
1. Go to the RCMP and request a Criminal Record Check, which will be mailed to us. (this takes 4-6 weeks)
2. Complete the Volunteers Form and email, or return it to our office.
3. Complete an orientation at the farm.
We are now seeking volunteers to help with our educational classes involving agriculture, cooking, crafts and animal husbandry. If you have a special skill you’d like to volunteer to teach we would love to make a class around it! We are also looking for volunteers to teach special holiday themed activities or classes, please contact us for more information about our classes.
Check out the video below to see how our horse program volunteers help out! Being a Horse Program Volunteer is physically demanding job but we have other volunteer positions that are less physically demanding.
