Farmer Frog had to move the farm from Paradise in Woodinville to BearGrass Farm in Snohomish. (the county decided to use Paradise as a parking expansion for the trails.) We are looking for passionate volunteers to help rebuild our farm at the new location. This beautiful site is larger than the old one was, but has no structures.

Volunteers will help with putting up fences, hoophouses, raised beds, arbors, building the gardens, planting trees, shrubs, perennials and seeds at this amazing location, as well as help maintaining what we already got done by weeding, moving compost, spreading mulch, watering, harvesting, helping with livestock, and setting up aquaponic systems. No experience is necessary, we encourage you to bring your talents and tell us how you would like to help bring your community together around healthy, local food! If you work for a company who is looking for a team building opportunity, we also host small to very large groups. Generally we are open to the public 10-2 on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday during the week. We ask that people bring their own work gloves, food and water, wear sunscreen and closed toe shoes. See you soon!

Please contact us today and let us know more about you and how you would like to get involved! For more info and to sign up for the next work party: http://farmerfrog.org/join/volunteer/

About Farmer Frog

Location:

Snohomish County/East King County, SNOHOMISH, WA 98290, 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 Snohomish. Our new BearGrass Farm will be opening soon to offer 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.
