Adopt-a-Row at Mother Earth Farm (Orientation Option 1) @ Emergency Food Network Mother Earth Farm
Mar 10 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Adopt-a-Row at EFN’s Mother Earth Farm! Groups, businesses, friends, school groups, clubs, churches, neighborhood associations, youth organizations, or even large families can Adopt-a-Row.

Volunteers experience the whole growing process on a bed of soil reserved just for them! They help plant seeds in the spring, tend the rows in the summer, and then harvest the bounty in the fall. Each group grows roughly 2,000 pounds of organic vegetables that is given to neighbors in need through EFN’s food pantry partners.

Adopt-a-Row groups attend a spring orientation to plant their seeds, make their sign, and learn more about what’s expected throughout the season. There are three dates to choose from (March 10, March 16 or April 21)!

Learn more about the Adopt-a-Row program and see the full schedule here!

Registration is required. To register, please contact EFN’s Volunteer Coordinator, Merrit Reed at merrit@efoodnet.org or (253) 584-1040.

Mother Earth Farm (Sat. Morning Session) @ Emergency Food Network Mother Earth Farm
Apr 28 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Emergency Food Network’s Mother Earth Farm is an 8-acre organic farm located in the beautiful Puyallup Valley. The farm distributes more than 100,000 pounds of fresh fruit, vegetables, and herbs annually to Pierce County food banks and meal sites. Food from the farm is available to food banks within 24-hours of harvest.

It would not be possible to provide this fresh food option to people in need without the help from volunteers. In the spring, volunteers at the farm assist with seeding, weeding, and irrigation. In the summer and fall, the focus is on weeding and harvesting.

Helping hands are needed on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Morning sessions (9:00 am – 12:00 pm) and afternoon sessions (12:30 – 3:30 pm) are available.

There is not a minimum age so youth groups and families of all ages are welcome! Groups up to 25 can be accommodated (if you have a group larger than 25 please contact us as we occasionally have special projects that can accommodate larger groups).

Registration is required. Due to safety reasons and limited capacity at the farm, we ask volunteers to not drop-in. To register, please contact EFN’s Volunteer Coordinator, Merrit Reed at merrit@efoodnet.org or (253) 584-1040.
