Get your hands dirty and learn about regenerative farm practices at 21 Acres! Join us for Farm Steward Saturdays: 10 AM to 12:30 PM.

Pre-register online required: https://21acres.org/classes-events

Ready to get involved in your local food system?

Work alongside knowledgeable 21 Acres staff on a variety of seasonal restoration and farm projects that build soil health and climate resilience. Your help supports local food systems by increasing farm productivity; building habitat for animals, birds, and insects; decreasing stormwater runoff; and storing carbon. Activities include seeding, transplanting, weeding, mulching, bed building, and more!

No prior farm experience required. All tools provided.

Friends and family 13 years and older are welcome to join! Volunteers ages 13-15 need an adult participant volunteering with them, and anyone under the age of 18 needs parent/guardian permission.

Bringing a group? If you are looking to register 10 or more people for these events, please email Issy Steckel, Volunteer Coordinator: issys@21acres.org.

Accessibility

We are committed to making our volunteer events as accessible as possible. Please reach out to our team with any questions, concerns, or needs prior to the event. If you are not attending this event due to accessibility concerns, please let us know. We welcome your feedback.

The 21 Acres farm is not ADA accessible. The roads are unpaved, and the ground can be uneven. Our LEED-certified education center is ADA accessible. There is an elevator in the building that goes to the second-floor restrooms. While our restrooms are not gender-neutral, we invite all guests to use the restroom that aligns with their identity.

Transportation

Free parking is available in our parking lot, though space is limited so carpooling is recommended. The number 231 bus runs along NE 171st Street and the 311 stops along NE 175th Street. There is a bike rack outside the Farm Market.

Cancellation

21 Acres loves time outside, rain or shine. With that said, safety is always our priority. We reserve the right to cancel volunteer programs when campus becomes unsafe due to wildfire smoke, extreme heat, high winds, or other conditions.

If we must cancel your program, registered volunteers will be informed of cancellations by the Volunteer Coordinator as soon as possible. Please make sure that the email and phone number you provide during registration are accurate.

Questions?

For accessibility or other inquiries, please email Issy Steckel, Volunteer Coordinator: issys@21acres.org.
