There are a lot of different ways to get involved with Fireweed and volunteering is one of them. Volunteers often help with events, shop upkeep, serve as class assistants, and contribute to community projects.

Fireweed Board and Committees

Getting involved on the board or a committee is a great way to help steer the path of Fireweed Community Woodshop.
