About

Adopt-a-Row at Emergency Food Network’s Mother Earth Farm! Groups, businesses, friends, school groups, clubs, churches, neighborhood associations, youth organizations, or even large families can Adopt-a-Row. It's great for adults and kids!


Volunteers experience the whole growing process on a bed of soil reserved just for them! They help plant seeds in the spring, tend the rows in the summer, and then harvest the bounty in the fall. Each group grows roughly 2,000 pounds of organic vegetables that is given to neighbors in need through EFN’s food pantry partners.

Requirements

  • Groups will be responsible for tending to 3 rows between March/April and September.
  • Row visits should have between 5 - 10 volunteers per session.
  • Groups need to tend to their rows 1-2 times per month.
  • All group members need to attend one orientation in March or April.

Benefits

  • A personalized sign with the company or group name placed at your row (your group will get to paint your sign at orientation!).
  • Featured in EFN’s eNewsletter, social media posts, website, and annual report.
  • Pictures and progress reports on your adopted rows to share with family and friends.
  • An official adoption certificate.

To register, please contact EFN's Coordinator of Volunteer Activities at (253) 584-1040 or email volunteer@efoodnet.org.
