During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
Bring your group to volunteer at CitySoil, a sustainable giving farm. CitySoil is a demonstration of low impact farming on extra land at a wastewater treatment plant. We grow over 3,000 lbs of fresh produce annually for a local food bank!
We are looking for community groups of ideally 10 or more folks to help us complete farm projects like tilling farm beds, harvesting fruit trees (in the summer!), and removing invasive plants at the farm. Volunteers will receive hands-on education in sustainable farming, a tasting tour of the site, and GroCo compost to take home.
Ideal opportunity for high school and college classes, business volunteering days, community organizations, and youth groups. The farm service learning experience can also be paired with a tour of the onsite wastewater treatment facility- for a full day sustainability focused field trip.

CitySoil Farm is an urban space devoted to environmental education and resource recycling to promote community food systems with imagination. Our mission is to help people make informed decisions and develop innovative solutions for food challenges. We view ourselves as partners with our community and environment, providing a platform for shared knowledge, non-traditional land-use, and the art of salvage.
CitySoil Farm (formerly known as the Seattle University Sustainable Urban Agriculture Project) is a 1.5 acre farm located at the King County Wastewater Treatment Plant in Renton, which means that the site is rather unique in being not just urban but also industrial.
Our vision of the future is one where both formal and informal education leads to increased public-private partnerships, community participation and innovation, and ecologically and socially sustainable food systems.
We'll work with your schedule.
