Volunteer at Elk Run Farm

Sign up link for work parties is at the bottom of the page but please read through the information before heading there!

Due to recommendations from Public Health Seattle & King County, we are continuing to limit the number of volunteers who can be onsite. No drop-in volunteers are allowed without permission from staff and masks highly encouraged to be worn at times when social distancing isn’t possible [UPDATED 7/19/2022]

Our address is 27625 228th Ave SE Maple Valley, WA 98038. The best way to navigate to the farm and avoid any issues is to enter “Elk Run Farm” as the destination in your navigation app. Please drive past the initial paved parking lot, through the gate/up the gravel road, and park next to our fence where there is a large white sign that says Elk Run Farm.

We strongly encourage everyone attending to wear layers and bring a reusable water bottle. There is drinking water available at the farm but we don’t distribute single-use cups or bottles!

We strive to be as inclusive as possible with volunteer opportunities. We encourage families and people of all abilities to attend, if interested. Volunteers of all ages are welcome. Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions at volunteer@skcfc.org!

Please read through our policies and forms before following the sign up link at the bottom of this page.

NEW IN 2022!

We are introducing a new volunteer registration form so that we can get to know our community better! All volunteers, no matter how many times you have been to the farm, are required to fill out our new Registration Form: https://forms.gle/kXRJk9hAUoEn2h2w9

Our new Registration Form includes our Volunteer Release and Waiver of Liability, which can also be found here. This document is required for all volunteers (including children) and can be submitted through the Registration Form, via email to volunteer@skcfc.org, or in person at the farm.

Once you have filled out the Volunteer Registration Form (required for all volunteers new AND returning), you’re ready to sign up for a work party.

Looking to learn about gardening or try out a new tool or technique? These work parties are your opportunity to work alongside our staff and other volunteers during the 2022 growing season. Each work party will have very different tasks from transplanting and direct seeding to weeding and preparing beds!

Join us on SUNDAYS from 10 am to 2 pm, TUESDAYS and THURSDAYS FROM 10 am to 12 pm, and every other WEDNESDAY from 6 PM to 8 PM, rain or shine! We will take a breaks to eat and drink so be sure to bring some food to snack on.
