Volunteering

Volunteers are critical to the success of farmland protection efforts in Ontario. The passion, commitment and expertise they share provide the foundation for the Ontario Farmland Trust’s work and allow us to grow the impact of our work on-the-ground in communities across the province.

To become part of the Farmland Trust volunteer team, you need to support OFT’s mission, be an active OFT member (click here for more on membership), and have needed skills and expertise to contribute.
