Flip Flop Ranch welcomes the participation of all volunteers, aged 14 and older. We have set times and days for individuals to volunteer, and groups are scheduled on a case by case basis. Volunteers may also schedule a one-time visit or volunteer on a regular basis as part of an ongoing project.

You’ll work under the supervision of trained staff on our 40 acre teaching farm, contributing to Flip Flop Ranch in a variety of ways:

  • Gardening – weeding, pruning, prepping garden beds, planting and pest control, composting, restoring native plants and removing invasive plants, and maintaining trails and beach access, etc.
  • Farm & Facilities – fixing fences, mucking out animal barns, building repairs, painting, etc.
  • Office work – technology support, mailings, fundraising calls, social media, photography, filing, research, etc.
  • Events – help with event set-up and de-rig, performers, craftspeople, parking and traffic control, etc.



All volunteer visits must be scheduled in advance. For individuals, please contact us and we can arrange a time for you to come out and help.

Corporate and community groups can schedule half or full-day volunteer session.


Please call the Flip Flop Ranch office at 760.680.6146 or email FlipFlopRanch@gmail.com for more information and group scheduling.

Thanks for your interest in supporting Flip Flop Ranch.
