Join us! Watershed offers several volunteer opportunities during the spring, summer and fall months.

Salad Days

Salad Days, Watershed’s annual celebration of ceramic art and locally sourced food, will be held on Saturday, July 8. Lend a hand for a few hours to help ensure that this huge community picnic runs smoothly for hundreds of guests. Volunteers help with set-up, greeting guests, serving food and beverages, managing parking, and clean up. Learn more about becoming a Salad Days volunteer



Annually, during the last two weeks of May, a crew of dedicated volunteers trade labor for time and space at Watershed. In exchange for free studio access, room and board*, 20 volunteer artists work six hours each weekday for Watershed (repairing and cleaning studios, equipment, and resident rooms in preparation for the summer season). Evenings are free for studio time or for exploring midcoast Maine.
