Food Bank Farm Harvest
2022 Spring Planting/Transplanting unitl Early-June
These are Rain or Shine events. Please sign up only if you are willing and able to work in the pouring rain of the Pacific Northwest. WE UNDERSTAND PLANS CHANGE AND THE WEATHER CAN BE UNPREDICTABLE SO PLEASE CANCEL BY 10am IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO COME SO WE CAN BETTER PLAN FOR THE DAY.
Anyone can volunteer: Individuals & Families – all ages, Friends/Pods, Co-workers, High School students looking for volunteer hours, Scouts, Neighborhood Groups, Community Groups, everyone & anyone!
Keeping Safe: Work is outside and masks are not required. We have plenty of space for groups to spread out in the fields. But, if you are not vaccinated, we recommend wearing a mask.
When: Harvests will begin in August and run through February/March. We have planting/transplanting work in the Spring and early Summer.
What to Bring: Water, Work Gloves, Boots for the mud/dirt, Layers for AM work, sunscreen/rain gear.
Where to Go: Field work will take place at farms located around the Snohomish River Valley. Locations will also be posted in the signup for the specific day.
- Dress for weather, and itchy-scratchy field conditions. The weeds are 6 feet tall in places. No open-toe shoes. Wear gloves - light duty gardening gloves are better than chunky leather gloves.
- BYOB. There is no drinking water at the farm. Plan to bring you water out to the field with you. We may be a distance from the parking area.
- We do have a clean porta potty.
We'll have plenty of time in the fields, so start time is arrival time.
