Growing food with Farmer Frog!

Join Farmer Frog in growing fresh produce on their farm! Farmer Frog is looking for volunteers to help with weeding, planting, and watering. Click Express Interest below to connect with Farmer Frog about your volunteer role and schedule. Please express interest only if you have some experience with gardening or farming. Due to social distancing, there is minimal training available for volunteers. Paradise Farm is the headquarters site of Farmer Frog. We are growing using permacultural and modern practices, we have livestock, orchard, aquaponics and many other wonderful systems. We share the food with families in the community who have little or no access to fresh food. The space is often visited by schools and children of all ages 0-100, as well as groups who are transitioning, youth detention releasees and folks who live with mental illness. Because the farm is located in the middle of Paradise Valley Conservation Area, it is an important wildlife habitat and restoration site and an educational spot where people can learn how to grow food in harmony with wildlife and the natural ecosystem. Read more about Farmer Frog's COVID-19 response here and COVID-19 safety protocols here. Donate to support Farmer Frog here. And here's some fun from the farm!
