Come Volunteer on the Farm!

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. Because we are in the conservation area,enter the farm through the Paradise Valley Conservation Area trail-head parking lot. The gate opens to a gravel driveway. Park just on the right side of the gravel driveway. Walk onto the farm.Come volunteer on the farm and learn about farming, food systems, and community!
