Mother Earth Farm is a unique farm-to-table program providing a fresh, organic food option to individuals and families in need within Pierce County. Your volunteer group will have the opportunity to adopt a predetermined number of rows of kale at Mother Earth Farm! You will be responsible for those plants from beginning to end. This means planting the seeds in spring, caring for the crop throughout the summer, and harvesting the produce twice during the season. The produce you grow will be at our food banks within 48-hours of harvest.

Be prepared to learn about farming, play in the dirt, and have some fun while helping to grow organic, nutritious produce for our neighbors in need!

Schedule:
Groups are asked to commit to a minimum of 12 days (each day is a 3-hour session) between March - September

  • March: Seeding
  • April: Planting
  • May - September: Fertilizing, Weeding, and Harvesting
Group Size:
To accomplish the tasks and goals set at each session, groups should plan to bring 8-15 volunteers each time. The more helping hands, the faster your task will be!

Minimum Age:
We do not have a minimum age to volunteer at the farm so youth groups and families are welcome!
