We believe education is a key component of community engagement. Our Educational Programming is designed as a collaboration with our partners and clients, as well as the general public.
Individuals and groups are welcome on the farm to support our work and reconnect with nature. Come out once or on a regular basis and we’ll throw you into the mix of our daily rhythm. Volunteer opportunities are varied in skill and intensity of labor - we aim to create opportunities for all abilities.
Join us seasonally from May to November. Our 2018 Volunteer Days are Wednesdays 3-7pm, Saturdays 9am-2pm, Sundays 9am-2pm. We also accommodate alternative schedules for those who want to regularly volunteer throughout the season. Email email@example.com to schedule your volunteer orientation. No prior farming or gardening experience is necessary.
Kids love the farm and we love kids! We design farm field trips for any demographic - whether it’s a local kindergarten class, high schoolers, Boy and Girl Scouts, Tiny Tots, or kids at heart.
A typical experience starts with a farm tour, then an activity or two to get hands in the dirt, learn how to harvest, and taste food fresh from the ground, followed by farm snacks in our picnic area. We highlight our connection to the land, being in nature, farm work, how food grows, what food tastes like when it’s fresh, and how to enjoy the fruits of our own labor.
Field trips are an opportunity to interact with nature and escape day to day patterns that often involve lots of sedentary time indoors consuming processed food. Offered May to November.
Workshops & Conferences
The world is a big place. We seek out interesting things happening in farming and bring big ideas to Seattle so you can learn from farmers doing amazing work outside the PNW.
This fall, we’re bringing farmer, educator, and best-selling author Jean-Martin Fortier to Seattle! Join us Nov 1-2, 2018 for Market Gardening 2.0 at 21 Acres , followed by a day long PNW food systems conference.
