Notes: volunteer opportunity

Alleycat Acres reconnects people, place, and produce with a network of neighborhood run urban farms. In partnership with Seattle Departments of Neighborhoods and Transportation, and thousands of community volunteers, we transformed a quarter acre of overgrown, undeveloped street into a vibrant community farm! This farm officially opened in the Fall of 2018 after 3 years of cleaning and preparing the site and coordination with the city. We are so excited to be growing food with the neighborhood, and distributing produce to Senior Housing Assistance Group, Downtown Emergency Services Center, and Rainier Valley Food Bank.

We need your help to get the farm ready for summer, plant our first crops, and build our children’s garden! On this day, we may be:

  • planting edible and sensory plants for the children’s garden
  • repairing and extending irrigation systems
  • cutting and turning in cover crop
  • planting spring crops
  • removing weeds
  • creating compost
  • mulching pathways

We will provide all the tools and gloves, but ask that you dress for the weather and wear sturdy shoes.

We will have water and light refreshments available.

It is a short walk down the street to access a public restroom.
