We rely on your support to continue our good work. Help us build school farms that feed their cafeterias and connect children to their food.
You can also support our programs by becoming a Sustaining Member of Schoolyard Farms. For just $10 a month, you can become a Sustaining Member and as a Thank You you will receive a Schoolyard Farms tote, 15% off Summer Camp and advance opportunity to enroll.
Volunteers play a pivotal role in our programming and are the cornerstone of our organization. With your help, we can make a greater impact on the health of our community.
We have a wide-range of volunteer opportunities from garden education to field work. See the descriptions above to see which opportunity best fits your needs. To volunteer regularly with Schoolyard Farms, we ask that you fill out a Volunteer Application, attend one of our volunteer trainings and commit to volunteering at least 3 hours per month. This year, our training days will take place on March 31st, June 26th and September 15th from 9am-2pm at Candy Lane Elementary. Please submit your Volunteer Application prior to one of these dates to enroll in the training.
Swing by the farm at Candy Lane Elementary (5901 SE Hull Ave. Milwaukie, OR. 97267) any Friday in April-October from 1-4pm (from June-August we extend our volunteer hours to 1-5pm) to help with general farm tasks. No need to RSVP or fill out an application, just come by and enjoy the benefits of working outside with your hands!
We occasionally host Drop-in Volunteer Days on the weekends throughout the growing season. Like our Facebook page to keep up-to-date with those volunteer opportunities.
