About

Join our team and help build and maintain school gardens in the Marysville, WA area. We are seeking Marysville residents (or nearby) who enjoy being outdoors in nature, growing food/or have an interest in learning how to, as well as working with and mentoring youth! However, we can teach the right person about growing food and would welcome volunteers with other skills to share!

Currently our work parties at both locations are Wednesdays from 2-4pm, but that might change depending on school faculty/staff schedules.

Volunteers will also be needed to work with school faculty and staff to help manage work parties and to promote the garden at school and community events to increase participation and connect low income families with the food resource that the garden provides. Volunteers are also needed to rally community donations to the garden - seeds, plants, supplies and general materials such as cardoard, snacks for garden events, etc.

Our school gardens are meant to teach kids, families and communities about growing and eating healthy, nutritious food while caring for the environment, serving others, and sharing in the harvest. If you agree that every kid should learn where their food comes from, please join us!
