Culpeper farm in great need of volunteers

Daily staff report

The good news is the number of people giving their time at the Volunteer Farms in Culpeper and Woodstock is up. The bad news is that even more are needed.

So far, 507 people are registered to help out at the Woodstock farm, up from 433 at this time in 2011, according to a news release from the Volunteer Farms. The number of hours volunteered also has jumped from 1,732 to 2,128, it states.

"The problem is that we are not receiving enough volunteers for the Culpeper farm, which is the newest operation, growing vegetables, fruits and berries on 40 acres," Bob Blair the chairman and CEO of the farms' parent organization, the World Foundation for Children, said in the release. "That farm has 97 acres, allowing for expansion if we had the necessary volunteers and funding from donations."

Office volunteers also are needed at the Woodstock farm, according to the release.

To volunteer, visit www.VolunteerFarm.Org. Donations can be made online or sent to Volunteer Farms, 277 Crider Lane, Woodstock, Va. 22664.
