First Coast Fresh Growers Cooperative, a local growers cooperative, is sponsoring a farm tour on Sunday, April 14. FCFGC is a newly formed local family farms marketing cooperative, who's goal is to sustain family farm profitability and improve the nutrition and health of consumers by providing fresh, healthy food with the highest food safety standards.

For this event,they are looking for at least 24 volunteers to serve as greeters, servers, and to do other support functions needed on the farms being toured. Volunteers will be assigned to one of eight farms participating in the tour. The shift available for this event is 10:00am – 4:00pm.
