The Edmonds College Campus Community Farm started in March 2012. Since then, over 12,000 volunteer hours have been served, and an estimated 21,000+ pounds of produce have been harvested. The goal of the campus community farm is to bring a diverse array of students, faculty, and staff around sustainable living practices and take advantage of an under-utilized space.
The farm boasts over 20 raised beds, a variety of perennial edible trees and shrubs, a collection of bee-loving flowers, an edible rain garden, and a hoop house. The site also includes rain cisterns, green roof, and the Cultural Kitchen. Contributors of the garden have many exciting plans for the future as well. The Campus Green Fund has made many of these projects possible.
Become Involved with the Farm
The farm is supported by the volunteer efforts of Students, Faculty, and Staff. EdPass holders can obtain produce from the campus food pantry. Volunteers can also take home produce directly. Volunteer hours can also count for Service Learning students. No sign up is necessary to volunteer.
CURRENT WORK PARTY SCHEDULE: Quarterly work party hours are posted on the Service Learning Website and at the entrance to the farm.
