 Volunteer full-time in residence at the Farm or in Boston

Gould Farm offers an opportunity for volunteers from around the world to participate in the life of this special community through a full-time, extended term of service in residence at the Farm or Fellside, our Boston area program.

The energy, vitality, and commitment of our volunteers provide a valuable contribution to our mission. Volunteers are immersed in the Gould Farm community working on the Residential, Garden, Forestry and GroundsFarm and Kitchen teams, as well as in the Harvest Barn Bakery, Roadside Café, and at our transitional program in the Boston area.

Mature and caring individuals interested in living in a therapeutic community are encouraged to apply. Because Gould Farm values the strength of its community, we ask that volunteers commit to a year’s service. We provide our yearlong volunteers with room and board, health insurance, and a monthly living stipend. A few short-term internships are available throughout the year on a limited basis.

I loved my experience volunteering at Gould Farm so much that I decided to stay for a 2nd year! I connected on a deep level with the mission of the Farm, the guests, and with my team. During my service, I felt tremendous personal and professional growth. A big heartfelt thanks to Gould Farm!
