Work Trade Program

Apply now as a work trade volunteer at EcoFarm Conference 2022

We are thrilled to announce the 42nd EcoFarm Conference, January 19-22, 2022 at the Asilomar State Beach & Conference Center, our annual gathering of agriculturalists working to advance ecological, equitable farms and food systems. Join us for visionary keynote speakers, skill-building workshops, pre-conference events, our tented expo, seed swaps, networking, and more.
We are seeking committed, reliable work trade volunteers who will support conference staff, events, and logistics. Work trade is an opportunity to attend the EcoFarm Conference at a discounted rate, while gaining experience in event production and participating in the EcoFarm Conference. Work trade volunteers must be available for the full conference, Wednesday- Saturday. Some jobs may be available for set up on Tuesday, January 18 and clean up on Saturday, January 22.
Work trade volunteers contribute 12-14 hours to the conference and receive a discount of $205 on Full Conference Registration.
Do you have experience providing friendly customer service and managing event logistics? We strongly encourage bilingual Spanish-speaking volunteers to apply as we are committed to providing bilingual front of house and backstage support throughout the conference. 
Please note:
  • EcoFarm requires all registrants to be vaccinated. Please only apply for Work Trade if you meet the EcoFarm Conference COVID policy
  • Do not register for the conference until you hear from EcoFarm on the status of your work trade application, as we cannot provide refunds.
The EcoFarm Work Trade Program is essential for success in every area of the conference. Many of our volunteers return year after year. We value the contributions of our committed volunteers and could not produce our wonderful conference without you!

Apply here as a work trade volunteer by Wednesday, November 15, 2021 (and may be extended if more volunteers are needed).
