Every Sunday May - September 2018
Come volunteer with us every Sunday on the Side Yard Annex Farm! Help us with weeding, digging, building, planting, beautifying and more. Great opportunity to get some quality time playing in the dirt while learning more about urban farming, healthy food, the seasons, and sustainability. Collaborate with other artists and farmers to make the farm more and more accessible, bountiful and fun! All volunteers will walk away with fresh food from the farm. No farming experience necessary.
Bring water, snacks, comfy (weather appropriate) clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty, garden gloves and your favorite gardening tool if you have one! We have a limited supply of gloves and hand tools.
Location and Parking Info:
The Side Yard Annex is on the corner of NE 45th St and Simpson Ave. 0.4 mile walk off of the 72 and 75 bus line. Street parking available. We suggest that Lifts and other vehicles enter NE 45th St from Ainsworth St. The road leading to the farm from NE Simpson is very uneven and can be difficult to traverse. Located down the street from our sponsor - The Side Yard Farm + Kitchen.
Open to anyone with a passion for art and farming! Our programming focuses on inclusivity of adults with developmental disabilities, but we are working towards a culture where people all along the disability spectrum can work, create and experience life together!
We are working hard to make the Side Yard Annex accessible to people of all abilities, however it is still a work in progress! Contact us with accessibility questions/concerns or suggestions: firstname.lastname@example.org
