What is Mother Earth Farm?
Each year Mother Earth Farm grows close to 100,000 pounds of fresh fruit, vegetables, and honey for local food banks and meal sites. It would not be possible for us to provide this fresh food option to people in need without the help from volunteers. Volunteers at this 8-acre organic farm assist with soil cultivation, seeding, planting, weeding, irrigation, and harvesting.
Volunteer opportunities are available most Fridays and Saturdays between May through September with a morning session (9:00 am – 12:00 pm) and an afternoon session (12:30 pm – 3:30 pm).
Mother Earth Farm is located approximately 5 miles southeast of downtown Puyallup, Washington (just north of Orting on Valley Avenue/Hwy 162). Directions to the farm are provided with registration.
Is experience required?
No experience is needed to volunteer at the farm. EFN staff will be on site to provide you with training and supervision. Gloves and tools will be provided. Bring a lunch and enjoy the picnic area.
Can I bring a group?
Volunteering at Mother Earth Farm is a great opportunity for business, civic, and school groups to work together while giving back to our community. Large group sizes can be accommodated.
Is there a minimum age?
Families and youth groups of all all ages are welcome to volunteer at the farm.
How to register?
Space is limited and registration is required. To volunteer at the farm, please call our Volunteer Coordinator at (253) 584-1040 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
