Agricultural Survey Volunteer

The Cumberland River Compact is seeking volunteers for the spring/summer season (April-June) to help us gather information for a voluntary survey of sustainable practices among local farmers.

We are looking for volunteers from throughout the Tennessee portion of the Cumberland Basin, with particular need in the areas around Montgomery/Robertson County, Putnam/White County, and Cannon/Coffee/Warren County.  Volunteers from elsewhere in Tennessee are also welcome. 

Volunteers will visit local farmer co-ops, farmers’ markets, and other such locations and solicit participation in a short (<5 minute) face-to-face surveys.  Visits can be scheduled at the volunteers’ convenience, and we would love to get both weekend and weekday volunteers! Volunteers must have access to transportation and willingness to actively solicit participants for the survey.  Survey materials and training/instructions will be provided.  Volunteers can volunteer for this project once (minimum 2 hours requested), several times, or on an ongoing basis.

If you are interested in this volunteer opportunity, please contact Alec Norman at alec.norman@cumberlandrivercompact.org.
