Seattle Community Farm - Volunteer Information

Can't make it?: Please let us know by emailing - it will help us plan accordingly.

Where to go: Seattle Community Farm is located on S. Lilac St, Seattle, WA 98108


Is there parking? Yes, there is two hour parking available on Lilac St. and neighboring streets, time will be provided to move your car. Volunteers are also welcome to park at ACRS’ main facility (3639 Martin Luther King Jr Way S, Seattle, WA 98108) which is a 5 minute walk from the farm. Parking there is free all day.

When to go: You will want to arrive on-site at the time of your scheduled shift. Farms shifts are 9am to 1pm. If you arrive late for your volunteer shift, we may not be able to accommodate you.

How to find us: Meet at the tables and shelter at the Seattle Community Farm. We will be waiting for you there.

TWIF Lead: We have a TWIF Lead at every event to lead the volunteer group. They will be your go-to person for everything you need during the event.

What to bring: Please bring a water bottle and something to eat as options in the area are extremely limited. Since the event is outside, we also recommend sunscreen. We will supply you with gloves and the tools that you need.

What to wear: Plan to get dirty! Please wear close-toed shoes and wear weather appropriate clothing.

Will we be inside or outside? Outside

Can I bring a friend? We still need volunteers for this event and we would appreciate any efforts you make in helping us find more volunteers. Feel free to tell your friends and co-workers - just make sure they register for a shift here.

How does this help? From March through June, ACRS is hosting workdays to help get this beautiful green space growing fresh veggies for the ACRS food bank and senior meal programs. Thanks to volunteers, we grew over 1,000 lbs of food in 2018 and we would love to beat that number this year!

Age Requirement: 18+

Documentation: Upon request, we will gladly supply you with documentation for your volunteer hours for work or school purposes. We do NOT, however, provide court documentation. We do not believe that volunteering is a punishment and under no circumstances will we provide documentation for court-ordered community service.

Training: Our team will be there to show you everything you need to know upon arrival!
