Slow Food will host a volunteer group on April 4, from 10am-3pm at the Seattle Tilth Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetland.
Please sign up here. We will check in closer to the event and provide more information and details as the date approaches. Thanks!
What to Expect: Service days on the farm are fun, family-friendly events! Opportunities for work and learning include both organic farm production and ecological restoration of the wetlands. Sample farm tasks include preparing planting beds, planting, watering, weeding, harvesting, and composting, as well as caring for the small livestock on the farm – chickens, bees, fish, and red wiggler worms. Wetland work includes removing invasive weeds, planting wetland trees and shrubs and sheet mulching to protect them.
What to Bring: Please come dressed for the weather and bring water bottle and snacks. Appropriate clothing includes layers, raingear, and sturdy shoes (hiking boots or rubber boots work well). Please wear clothing you don’t mind getting dirty. Tools and gloves are provided, and we also have some extra rain gear and rubber boots.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions! Thanks!
