Community Fair Spotlight: Elk Run Farm

Elk Run Farm

**Since we were unable to hold the Community Fair part of KCD’s Plant Sale this year, we’re moving it online to highlight and share the incredible work and services our community partners provide.

Elk Run Farm grows food year-round to supply 12 food banks in South King County with fresh fruits and vegetables. They are a past recipient of a KCD Regional Food System Grant through the South King County Food Coalition.

Elk Run Farm is hosting small volunteer work parties every Wednesday and Saturday. With public school closures, and the fact that much of the work done on the farm this time of year is by Tahoma High School Plant Sciences classes, Elk Run Farm could use your help. Following Public Health guidelines, Elk Run Farm is using social distancing on the farm for the foreseeable future. This means that no more than 8 people can volunteer at a time. Get your hands dirty and breathe the fresh farm air as you help plant, tend, and harvest over 35 different fruits and vegetables for the food banks of the South King County Food Coalition. Learn how to grow food, spend quality time with your loved ones, and give back to the community. All ages welcome.

They have added weekday events to keep up with the spring farm work and they are published on the Elk Run Farm Facebook page. For more information and to sign up for a work party, follow them on Instagram, Facebook and signup! They need your support now, more than ever, so please sign up and volunteer at the farm!
