Support sustainable neighborhood farming at Marra Farm

June 11, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Marra Farm is one of only two historic agricultural parcels still farmed today in Seattle. It’s a place to learn about organic produce cultivation, food-related issues in our community and environmental stewardship. Through its gardening projects, Marra Farm not only cultivates food for those in need but also teaches neighborhood self-reliance, environmental awareness and about issues like hunger relief and improved nutrition.

We’ll be helping out in Lettuce Link’s Giving Garden, a 3/4-acre plot on historic urban farmland. All of the produce grown in the Giving Garden stays in the South Park community and is distributed via food banks, meal programs and the Work Trade program.  Learn more when you join us to spend a few hours in the fresh air, catch some sunshine and get your hands dirty!

Space is limited – email Cassandra to reserve your spot today.
