Volunteering is a great way to do your part to keep Washington farmland healthy, meet new people, and get outside for a great cause. Whether you are restoring on-farm habitat, removing invasive species, or out in the community talking to people about the importance of local, sustainable agriculture, volunteers play an integral role in our work. Please note that due to COVID-19, our volunteer opportunities are limited at this time. That said, we are exploring creative ways to engage with volunteers safely over the coming months and would love to hear from you about your interests.
“It is great fun to join Washington Farmland Trust staff in promoting farming and local food production. I always feel so supported and energized by my volunteer work with the Trust!”Polly Freeman, volunteer

Community Engagement Team
Do you love talking to folks about the importance of local food and farmland? Are you an active social media poster? If you answered “yes” to either of these questions, this opportunity is a great fit for you! Join our Community Engagement Team to champion our work at local community festivals and farmers markets, or help promote our events or initiatives online to help engage the public about our work.
On the Farm Team
In addition to protecting farmland, we steward and care for the land so that it thrives into the future. That means we frequently need help pulling weeds or planting trees and shrubs in order to keep our farmland healthy. Sometimes, we offer opportunities to help glean produce from farms to be donated to local food banks. If you enjoy rolling up your sleeves and getting outside for a great cause, this opportunity is a great fit for you.
