FARMING AND GARDENING

Learn by doing as you work alongside Tilth Alliance staff and other community members at our community learning gardens and the Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlands. Depending on the time of year, you'll be weeding, harvesting food for local food banks, preparing beds for planting, caring for natural areas and more! No experience necessary, and gloves and tools provided.
