Farming is demanding but rewarding. Whether you’re a student or a community member, join us to learn more about sustainable agriculture, food systems and our role in the community!
All are welcome to stop by and visit the farm or volunteer during any of our Volunteer Hours. If you’ve never been to the UW Farm before, please begin by signing up to be a volunteer. This helps us track volunteers and insures you in case of injury.
Our work day revolves around the seasons, planting and harvests for most of the year. Harvest Hands volunteer work involves primarily helping with the harvest, picking, washing, packing and some field work. Farm Team volunteer work involves bed preparation, weeding, transplanting, pruning, direct seeding and other tasks related to maintaining the farm’s produce production and management of perennial plants.
