Dear Farm Friends,
Elk Run Farm grows fresh fruits and vegetables for the food banks in the South King County Food Coalition. The farm sits on a former golf course in the heart of the suburbs of King County where the land would otherwise go unused. Produce grown at Elk Run Farm is donated to community members who can least afford it and live in areas where access to healthy food is limited. The farm helps to increase availability of healthy foods for families that visit the food banks while promoting sustainable urban agriculture.
As a nonprofit farm, Elk Run Farm relies solely on the contributions and awards garnered from grants, generous donations from our community, and the many volunteers that built the farm from the ground up. Most of the necessary infrastructure was even funded by Rotary Clubs of District 5030 without which the farm would not be able to grow as much food as we do now. Keep their investment and hard work alive by supporting Elk Run Farm for the 2018 growing season! Your support will directly fund six areas of the farm’s work:
- Growing Food for the Food Banks
- High School Education
- Field Trips
- Adult Education
- Environmental Stewardship
- Social Justice and Anti-Poverty Work
Check out the fundraiser to read more about our plans for each area of work!
To show our appreciation, we have a variety of Elk Run Farm-themed rewards for all levels of giving. Some of these include a limited edition set of Elk Run Farm postcards, a jar of raw honey from our honey bee hives, a farm picnic for four, and even a comprehensive garden design consult by our farm and field managers!
Can’t contribute financially? Please share this fundraiser widely with friends and family!
We kindly ask that you consider supporting us through a gift of your choice. We believe that all residents of South King County should have equal access to food that truly nourishes the mind and body regardless of their income. With your contributions, we can continue to make this vision a reality and better serve all community members in our region.
The Elk Run Farm team
