Volunteer Opportunity: Teach at Marra Farm this Spring!

Do you like working with kids outside? Lettuce Link is looking for volunteers to help with the gardening and nutrition classes at Marra Farm this spring.

They will be teaching garden and nutrition education to elementary school students and need co-teachers. They work with children to plant their own gardens, cook healthy snacks, and read culturally relevant stories to learn about soil, plant parts, ecosystems and more.

This is a great fit if you’re energetic, have experience working with kids, are passionate about educating through an anti-oppression framework, and like the outdoors! There are three different classes – volunteers need to commit to come regularly to one of the class series. Volunteers must fill out a volunteer application and pass a Washington State Patrol background check.

  • Tuesdays, 1:30-4:45pm, April 3rd- June 12th (excluding 4/17 – spring break) – 2nd grade
  • Wednesdays, 9:30am-11:30am, April 4th – June 13th (excluding 4/18 – spring break) – 3rd grade
  • Wednesdays, 12:30-3:30, April 4th  – June 13th (excluding 4/18 – spring break) – 5th grade
 Marra Farm is located in Seattle’s South Park neighborhood, at 9026 4th Ave S, 98108.

If this sounds like a good fit for you, please fill out a volunteer application and return to Robin at lettucelink@solid-ground.org, who will follow up with you
