Note: The farm is maintaining safe volunteering by limiting sessions to 7 volunteers so they can keep physical distance. If you have any comments or concerns about volunteering during the Covid-19 pandemic, don't hesitate to contact us.

Our 8-acre organic farm, located outside of Puyallup, provides over 100,000 pounds of fresh vegetables and fruits each year to local food pantries. It would not be possible to provide this fresh food option to people in need without help from volunteers. From April 28th through the end of September, volunteer dates are available on Saturdays with two sessions to choose from: 9:00 am - 12:00 pm or 12:30 - 3:30 pm. 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. It doesn't matter if you are an avid gardener or this is your first time working with plants. Our awesome staff will be on hand to with gloves, tools and everything you need to get started.

16 (15 and under must be accompanied by an adult)

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 at MadisonS@efoodnet.org or (253) 584-1040.
