    The Powhatan Farm is one of two farms run by Shalom Farms and is the primary growing site. It covers 14 acres with nearly 7 acres in production, six hoop houses, and harvests over 500,000 servings of produce a year.

    From planting and harvesting, to weeding and field preparation, volunteers are hard at work almost every day and assist with nearly every aspect of farm operation.

    As first-time volunteers we’ll receive an educational tour at the start of our shift that gives an overview of the Farm’s agricultural operation and food access initiatives across Richmond.
