Get Involved

We welcome all individuals seeking to experience the farm as there are opportunities for everyone to contribute. If you are interested in learning more, please contact us.


Volunteering at Pachamama Farm & Wellness

We always appreciate having volunteers on the farm! We are usually able to happily offer fresh herbs and vegetables in exchange for your time and effort. This is a great opportunity to get your hands in the dirt and learn about the many aspects of life on the farm! 


You are welcome to come volunteer on Thursday morning (either 8-12pm or 9-1pm). No skills or experience necessary, but we do ask that you attend a brief volunteer training, offered twice per month. Please contact us if you are interested in volunteering.

Meet The Pachamama Team

 Andrew Axelrod, Farm Intern




As the newest and youngest member of the Pachamama team I’m excited to learn as much as I can in this amazing environment. I am an intern at Pachamama. I have always had a lot of interest in sustainable living; I couldn’t ask for a better place to learn and grow as a person. In my free time, I enjoy hiking through the mountains and exploring everything that Colorado has to offer. I’m excited to see the future of Pachamama and the amazing things this farm can offer.




Andrew Somps, Farm Intern 



I took to farming as a way to deepen and enhance my connection to the Earth. I believe by developing a relationship with nature we allow ourselves the opportunity to fully understand this miraculous interconnected web of life of which we are a part. Once understood, I believe it is then our responsibility to play our part as best we can and make sure we allow for other life forms to do the same. I’m attending Naropa University’s Ecopsychology program this Fall to expand upon my curiosities concerning human beings and our innate connection and belonging to this planet of ours. Ecopsychology essentially looks to recognize the relationship between human health, sanity, even identity, and the health of the non-human natural world. I look forward to integrating what I learn in my program to what I’m currently learning on the farm. Pachamama is the perfect environment to allow for a more impactful, experience-based application of ecopsychology.




Dottie Arnold, Farm Co-Manager and Volunteer Coordinator


I first fell in love with farming on the coast of California as a teacher at an educational farm and micro-goat dairy many, many years ago.  Farming and my love of the outdoors led me to Scotland where I received my Masters degree in Outdoor environmental education from the University of Edinburgh.  After, I spent many years as a teacher and the garden manager at The Farm School.  There I also received formal farming training in their Learn to Farm program, with a focus in vegetable production and medicinal plants.  I joined the Pachamama team in 2017 and I am thrilled to be growing food at Pachamama for another season.


Gail Margolis, Administrative Manager 

I was born in Israel and raised in coastal Connecticut. I moved to Boulder six years ago to attend Naropa University. I finished my BA in 2012 with a double major in Yoga and Somatic Psychology. I continued my educational pursuits at Naropa, graduating in 2015 with an MA in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology. I have felt a deep connection to and reverence for nature since I was a small girl picking figs and olives in my grandfather’s garden. I find such deep happiness working in nature, getting my hands in the dirt. I have worked on several different farms in the Boulder area over the years, deepening my love and knowledge for plants, food, medicinal herbs, and holistic wellness. Pachamama Farm & Wellness is a manifestation of all these passions. I work as the administrative manager on the farm and am so grateful to have the privilege of working with such a magical group of people. As of November 2015, I have joined the Pachamama Wellness team! Visit our wellness page for more information about my practice, Gail Margolis Wholistic Psychotherapy.


Noah Garcia, Farm Co-Manager

unnamedAs a Colorado native, I am very excited to be joining the Pachamama Team this year.  I am thrilled to be growing food for others and serving the community of the Front Range.  My life’s passions are anywhere outdoors, in backcountry settings and learning/tending the local flora and fauna.  I spent several seasons working the land at The Farm School, while working as an apprentice with a master carpenter in Massachusetts.  More recently I have worked to regenerate native plant populations for a local conservation non-profit.  I look forward to bringing my skills and passions to Pachamama and joining in the season ahead.


Wiley Conte, Farm Crew Member

Photo on 1-16-18 at 11.00 AM After studying Community Development and Applied Economics at the University of Vermont, I became fascinated in ecological agriculture.  During college, I volunteered at Flack Family Farm in Fairfield, Vermont.  Most of this work centered around fermented vegetable production.  From this experience in conjunction with my academic curriculum, I became deeply interested in working with edible and medicinal plants.  After two years working in the tech industry after college, I moved to Boulder to pursue a career in agronomics and permaculture.  Some of my interests in this space include forest gardening, mycology, and natural building. In addition to pursuits in farming, I also work with clay, mostly throwing pots with utilitarian functions.  Like agriculture, ceramics allows me to work with the earth to create value.  I am a teaching assistant at The Boulder Pottery Lab  and plan to focus on producing more refined table and dinner wares in 2018.
