I also recognize that aspects of farming activities are inherently dangerous. With this knowledge, I hereby expressly and specifically assume the risk of injury or harm in these activities and, as further described in Section 2, below, release The Crest at Willow-Witt from all liability for injury, illness, death, or property damage resulting from my activities and my time at The Crest at Willow-Witt.
    2. Waiver and Release. By signing below, I, on behalf of my family and heirs, release and forever discharge and hold harmless THE CREST AT WILLOW-WITT and its directors, officers, employees, agents, affiliates, successors and assigns from any and all liability, claims and demands of whatever kind or nature, either in law or in equity, which arise or may hereafter arise from activities at THE CREST AT WILLOW-WITT. I understand and acknowledge that this Agreement discharges The Crest at Willow-Witt from any liability or claim that I or my heirs may have against The Crest at Willow-Witt with respect to bodily injury, personal injury, illness, death, or property damage that may result from my activities and time spent at The Crest at Willow-Witt. I also understand that The Crest at Willow-Witt does not assume any responsibility for or obligation to provide financial assistance or other assistance to me, including but not limited to medical, health or disability insurance in the event of injury, illness, death or property damage. I am solely responsible for providing my own medical/health insurance and personal property insurance. If I, or anyone on my behalf makes a claim against the Crest at Willow-Witt, I agree to indemnify, save and hold harmless The Crest at Willow-Witt from any claim, including without limitation, loss, liability, damage or cost which may occur as a result of any such claim.
    3. Insurance. I, the Volunteer, understand that I expressly waive any such claim for compensation on the part of The Crest at Willow-Witt.
    4. Medical Treatment.

    5. Photographic Release. I understand that I may be photographed while volunteering and that such photos may be used in the organization’s marketing and promotional materials (e.g., website, print, materials). I hereby release any interest I may have in any photographic images, video or audio recordings that may be taken by the organization. I furthermore permit the organization to use my image without compensation.
    6. Behavior. I understand that my behavior at The Crest at Willow-Witt must comply with all rules and regulations of the State of Oregon and The Crest at Willow-Witt.

I agree that in the event that any clause or provision of this Waiver shall be held to be invalid by any court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such clause or provision shall not otherwise affect the remaining provision of this Release which shall continue to be enforceable.
