City Soil Farm is looking for 2020 volunteers!

Come learn about recycled water, composting methods, permaculture, tree pruning, harvesting methods, plant identification, rain gardens, hugelkultur, and take a bag of fresh produce home. No experience is required as we would love the opportunity to share our knowledge and experience with gardeners of all levels.

CitySoil takes a break for the winter, but we will be back and ready to grow in March 2020! There are three ways (at least!) that you can contribute to the farm, please reach out to Charity Villines to coordinate.

Become a weekly volunteer: 

This is an opportunity to create a community learning environment by joining others on the site and sharing your life experiences and knowledge. We are looking for volunteers to commit to at least one four hour shift a week. Shifts are available Tuesday-Thursday, 9:30-4 pm. Spring/Summer volunteer orientations will start in March 2020. 

Volunteer as a class, office, family: 

Organize a group and join us for a day of farm work, snacks, and community building. This experience can also be paired with a tour of the South Renton Wastewater Plant. With advance notice we can work with your group to plan a fun, family friendly service day. Service days can be scheduled (depending on staff availability) Monday-Saturday, between 9:30-4 pm. 

Join us for a Service Day led by our farm partners: 

Our farm partners and friends often host weekend service-learning days. Most events involve a hands-on workshop on sustainable farming and gardening, and chance to practice new skills while improving the farm. If you're looking for winter service opportunities, join our partners King Conservation District at their native plant nursery next door to farm! These programs are posted to our public events calendar.

Check out the events page for details!

 

Do you have skills that you'd like to share, but don't fit into the boxes above? Reach out to us! We'd love to collaborate with artists, scientists, high school students, retirees, and anyone else who'd like to contribute to our space!
