The Agricultural History Project provides an opportunity for you to volunteer and gain the satisfaction of bringing agricultural history alive to people of all ages.
We are looking for people of all ages to volunteer. A docent shares information on the collection and exhibits in the Codiga Center and Museum, Porter Implement Shed and Snyder Restoration Barn, and can share stories about agriculture and its practices of the Central Coast of California.
As a volunteer, your skills are needed in maintaining the vast collection of artifacts, exhibits and equipment in the collection. Volunteers are needed in the research library to help maintain the collection of photos, papers, books, pamphlets and other artifacts that have been given to AHP for future generations to appreciate and enjoy.
If you like to work with children, the Education Program could use your skills to teach children some of the past practices of agriculture. The Education Program teaches children how food and fiber is grown and processed.
If your skills are in advertising, publicity or promotion, you could help promote AHP through the various media. It is our intention to be a major tourist attraction for the entire Central Coast.
AHP is always looking for volunteers to help in fund raising, to gain new members, to talk with potential sponsors for our various activities and to be part of a speakers’ bureau. Should you have any questions or want to be a volunteer, please call the AHP office at (831) 724-5898.
The heart of the Agricultural History Project is its volunteers and we are in need of a few more volunteer museum docents. These docents greet our guests and assist them in getting the most out of their visit to AHP. We ask these volunteers to give one day a month during museum hours, from 12 noon to 4 pm on Thursday though Sunday. To sign up for the training, please call AHP office at 831-724-5898 and leave a message with your phone number and name.
