One of the ways Emergency Food Network (EFN) fights hunger is through Mother Earth Organic Farm, which grows fresh fruits and vegetables for local food pantries on its eight acres in Puyallup. The work at EFN's Mother Earth Farm to produce fresh, organic fruits and vegetables for the community is year round! During winter months, we distribute more than 13,000 pounds of cool-weather produce such as leafy greens, brussels sprouts, and chard.

You will stay dry while you lend a hand by weeding in our industrial-sized high tunnels. 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 with gloves, tools and everything you need to get started.
