Emergency Food Network’s Mother Earth Farm is an 8-acre organic farm located in the beautiful Puyallup Valley. The farm distributes more than 100,000 pounds of fresh fruit, vegetables, and herbs annually to Pierce County food banks and meal sites. Food from the farm is available to food banks within 24-hours of harvest.
It would not be possible to provide this fresh food option to people in need without the help from volunteers. In the spring, volunteers at the farm assist with seeding, weeding, and irrigation. In the summer and fall, the focus is on weeding and harvesting.
Helping hands are needed on Fridays and Saturdays. Morning sessions (9:00 am - 12:00 pm) and afternoon sessions (12:30 - 3:30 pm) are available.
There is not a minimum age so youth groups and families of all ages are welcome! Groups up to 25 can be accommodated (if you have a group larger than 25 please contact us as we occasionally have special projects that can accommodate larger groups).
Registration is required. Due to safety reasons and limited capacity at the farm, we ask volunteers to not drop-in. To register, please contact EFN’s Volunteer Coordinator, Sam Cook at SamC@efoodnet.org or (253) 584-1040.
