Special Notice -- Work Shifts Available
We have a new system for signing up to work on the farm. Read all about it below.
Workshift Signups Are Here!
By Hal Wright
The roll-out of our new online sign-up system has begun. It is once again possible to sign up for work shifts online. There are a few changes, so read this post carefully even if you are experienced with the old system.
There are two new work opportunities available, scheduled for Wednesday April 23rd at 5:00 pm and Monday April 28th at 5:00 pm, so please sign up right away if you'd like to participate. If you encounter trouble, please send us an email to let us know what is happening.
As of now, the one place to find work shifts is on our calendar, accessible from the link on our members' page. The work shifts may be viewed without logging in, but to sign up, you will need to log in first. The login credentials are the same as those you used to register, and if you've forgotten your password, there is a link on the log in page to have one emailed to you.
Once you log in and return to the calendar page, you will see a "signup" link under each work shift that still has room for more workers. Click on that link, then click the "+" sign next to each name in your member group you'd like to add, and you're all set. Once you've signed up, there is a red "x" allowing you to remove yourself from the list, and an icon permitting you to sign up trusted guests if you wish. Note: The sign-up window typically closes on the evening prior to the work shift, so call or send us an email with any last-minute changes.
Your member group's work commitment and hours worked appear under "Member Services" on the members' page. It might take us a little time to log the hours you've worked, so please be patient, they will show up within a few days.
Just a note on member groups... In the last newsletter, I described how to add associate members to your account. Anyone added in this manner will show up on your member group list for work shift sign-ups.
