Educating The Community For Over 30 Years
Visit. Explore. Learn.


We welcome volunteers of all ages! The Agricultural History Project Center & Museum provides an opportunity for you to volunteer and gain the satisfaction of bringing agricultural history alive for people of all ages. If you’re interested in becoming a volunteer or docent, please call the AHP office at (831) 724-5898 or email Lynn at We look forward to hearing from you!

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.
