[ARCHIVED] - Volunteer: Help Our Pickering Garden Grow -

We’re seeking green thumbs to help our Pickering Demonstration Garden grow!

Volunteers take part in growing fresh produce for the Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank. In the process, they learn techniques for growing food organically and utilizing natural resources wisely.

Join us to help plant, harvest, weed and have fun — all while serving a good cause!

We own the Pickering Demonstration Garden, and our partner Seattle Tilth helps to operate it.

Volunteer hours are available from May through September: 10 a.m. -1 p.m. Tuesdays, 3-6 p.m. first and third Wednesdays, and 10 a.m.-1 p.m. second and fourth Saturdays.

To schedule a group work party, email Emily Gordon.

If you are younger than 18, or you’ll be bringing a volunteer younger than 18, you'll need to bring a signed waiver. Children younger than 9 must be accompanied by an adult.
