As a mainly volunteer organization, we depend heavily on teenage volunteers to get a lot of our work done. Throughout the year, Boy Scouts and Girls Scouts, as well as middle-school and high-school students from both Dunwoody and Chamblee do clean-up and landscaping jobs around the farm and other properties we manage, as well as volunteer at Lemonade Days.
Often the projects are performed in the pursuit of Scout badges. Several Girl Scouts have earned their Gold Award through original projects at the farm. Likewise have several Boy Scouts reached Eagle Scout status. If you’re a Scout looking for a way to make a difference, talk to us.

- Setting up a lending library near the barn
- Producing a series of videos of our historic homes
