Location: TBA (at a farm around the Snohomish River Valley)
Click Here to Sign Up!!

These are Rain or Shine events. Please sign up only if you are willing and able to work in the pouring rain of the Pacific Northwest. We have planting/transplanting work in the Spring and Summer. Harvests will begin in August and run through February/March.
WE UNDERSTAND PLANS CHANGE, AND THE WEATHER CAN BE UNPREDICTABLE. Please cancel by 10 a.m. so we can better plan for the day.

Anyone can volunteer:
individuals and families of all ages, Friends/Pods, Co-workers, High School students looking for volunteer hours and anyone!

What to Bring:
Water, Work Gloves, Boots for the mud and dirt, sunscreen, and rain gear.

Where to Go:
Field work will take place at farms around the Snohomish River Valley. The locations will be informed a week before or so as the plants breathe and grow in nature. Field Maps will be attached when the location is determined.

Dress for the weather and itchy-scratchy field conditions:
The weeds can be 6 feet tall in places in summer—no open-toe shoes. Wear gloves - light-duty gardening gloves are better than chunky leather gloves.

There is no drinking water at the farm. Plan to bring your water out to the field with you. We may be a distance from the parking area. We do have a clean porta potty.

We'll have plenty of time in the fields, so the start time is the arrival time.

If you have any questions, email us at shunju@jbaseattle.org for registrations. On the activity day (if you get lost trying to find the field), please contact Fr. Jim at (425) 223-7249.
