Farmer Frog is looking for passionate volunteers to help maintain school gardens in the Snohomish County area. If you share our passion to bring fresh, local produce to schools, to increase the amount of healthy food available to low income families, and to educate students of all ages about the local food system and food justice; please contact us!

Volunteers at our gardens will perform various tasks to assist in maintaining the gardens: weeding, moving compost, spreading mulch. No experience is necessary, we encourage you to bring your talents! We have school gardens as well as other growing areas that are not affiliated with schools. The school gardens do require that our volunteers get a background check done.

Please contact us today and let us know more about you and how you would like to get involved! For more info on our volunteer opportunities, check out our Volunteer page on our website: http://farmerfrog.org/join/volunteer/

About Farmer Frog

Location:

Snohomish County/East King County, Everett, WA 98208, US

Mission Statement

Farmer Frog is Sprouting Simple Change. We grow kids, cultivate community and nurture habitat for all living things through real food.

Description

We are a 501c3 nonprofit organization serving thousands of people with free or low cost fresh food and hands on learning as we also protect the environment and wildlife 365 days a year. We help create, maintain and manage edible school gardens and small permaculture farms. We show educators how to use such spaces as outdoor classrooms to teach STEAM and we assist folks learning how to grow food in whatever space they have available in ecosystem friendly ways.

Our headquarters is in Woodinville. Paradise Farm offers learning and gathering spaces, retreat and relaxing opportunities and is a demonstration site for several important programs including Bear With Me (our wildlife and predator friendly practices), Farmer Frog Studios (our art and film projects) and smart farming systems that include research and partnership with local higher education institutions. We host people from all walks of life, from schools through clubs and corporate teams, various cultural programs, immigrant communities, private gatherings, hands on classes, summer campers, NAMI programming, facilitator-led activities, juvenile releasees and community service oriented individuals.
