Volunteers play an essential role in setting up and running successful and fun events throughout the year. With a wide variety of jobs, there is something for every interest and experience level! 

We host four large annual events, including two Edible Plant Sales, Farm Fest, and the Tilth Conference, as well as several smaller gatherings throughout the year. Our smaller events include activities for Earth Day, Endangered Species Day, Pollinator Week and other gatherings throughout the year. Check back here to learn about upcoming events and join in on the fun — as a volunteer, a participant, or (ideally) both!

March Edible Plant Sale

Volunteers are essential to the success of our Edible Plant Sales. With volunteer shifts ranging from helping shoppers with their plant selections to processing payments, we hope you find an opportunity that excites you!

Community Volunteer Day with Tito’s Vodka

Tilth Alliance is partnering with Tito’s Handmade Vodka to host a community volunteer day! Volunteers will have the opportunity to support a variety of projects at Rainier Beach Urban Farm & Wetlands and enjoy lunch together in celebration of Volunteer Appreciation Month.

Tito’s investment in and commitment to making fresh food accessible to all will support enhancement projects across the site. Projects will include planting flowers to beautify our spaces, building a shade trellis and assembling furniture to improve our gathering spaces, preparing beds for Spring planting, repairing equipment for continued functionality, and more! The day will also feature a local artist painting a mural on our Market Stand. We look forward to a day of volunteering together!

We will pause and gather for a community lunch from noon-1 p.m. You are welcome to sign up for both shifts!
