Current Opportunities
 
SPECIAL EVENTS

Join us in setting up, running, and closing out our special community events. Events like the annual May Edible Plant Sale and Farm Fest in the fall require volunteer power to set up tents, tables, and signs, greet participants, help with activities and demonstrations, and tear everything down and tidy up after the event. We can't host these events without our amazing volunteers' support.

    • Rainier Beach Farm Fest 2021
      Many thanks to the volunteers who came out to support Rainier Beach Farm Fest this year! We had a blast! 
    • Pollinator Hillside Planting Party
      Join our Garden Hotline educators for fall planting, mulching, weeding, and watering on the Pollinator Hillside at Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlands on Friday, September 24, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

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.

GOOD FOOD BAG PACKING AND FARM STAND SUPPORT
      • Volunteer Packing Good Food Bags
        Help make fresh, locally-grown fruits and veggies available to more members of our community! Volunteers weigh and pack produce that goes to local families and seniors.
      • Support the Summer Farm Stand
        Keep this amazing community resource running smoothly. The farm stand sells fresh produce, plant starts, flowers, and locally-made goods. Volunteers weigh produce on Tuesdays or help set up or take down the Farm Stand on Thursdays.
