Farmer Frog

We need help! Our farm is in full gear now as we grow a large variety and rescue fresh produce from other farmers amazing vegetables, all to distribute it all to our local food banks and community organizations. Our team is busy every day literally moving hundreds of thousands of pounds of food. We feed over a million Washingtonians.

We have no time left to keep up with our beautiful spots and need help with the weed whacking and mowing of these areas.
We hope to have volunteers who want to regularly schedule meadow and edge maintenance at our site. You can bring your own equipment or use ours. If we can schedule multiple people, everyone can do a reasonable size area in a reasonable time and no one gets overwhelmed with the task. Each area would need biweekly attention. The grass cut can be raked up and our geese will be very excited to gobble it up. We can tend to that part of job with our team members. PPE are required, if you have your own protective eyeglasses and ear muffs, you can use those or we can give you these as well for the periods you are working at the farm. Your help is so important, it enables our team to focus on sharing fresh food with the people in need.

Please contact us for specific details on the schedule and we make sure you can do this as it fits your availability best.

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 Snohomish. Our new BearGrass Farm will be opening soon to offer 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.
