Farmer Frog is looking for passionate volunteers to help build and maintain Paradise Farm. This beautiful site has been considered Sacred for thousands of years and was used as a farm since the 1870s. We are restoring, repairing the structures and the forest and building modern permaculture based systems.

Volunteers will perform various tasks to assist in building or maintaining the gardens at this amazing location: weeding, moving compost, spreading mulch, watering, planting new crops, harvesting existing crops, helping with livestock, aquaponic systems, and various growing methods. 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! Generally we are open to the public 1-5 on Saturday afternoons or by appointment during the week days.

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/
To find us, go to Paradise Valley Conservation Area trailhead parking lot. Our gate opens from there. Drive in on the long gravel driveway and park on the right by other cars. Walk right in through our roped gate. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Paradise+Valley+Conservation+Area+Parking+and+Trail+Head/@47.7886076,-122.0798392,15z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0xdd7f2544c35beaa4?sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwilvtfnmKzlAhXMvp4KHdZGCrMQ_BIwE3oECBAQCA

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.
