Farm at Franklin Pierce
With our high school classes unable to come to The Farm this fall, we are relying on our wonderful volunteers more than ever! Click one of the links below to sign up to come help us on the Farm and take home some delicious produce!
The Farm is located on the traditional lands of the Coast Salish people, specifically the Puyallup Tribe (spuyaləpabš). We thank the original caretakers of this land, past, present, and future, and hope that our work here honors their legacy of care, respect, and reciprocity.
The Farm is an 8-acre educational site, including wetland and native restoration planting areas, an orchard, and 2 acres of vegetables. We host daily high schools classes from each high school in the district, weekly volunteer community days, weekly adult farming classes taught by Harvest Pierce County, field trips and farm visits throughout the season, and a community garden managed by Harvest Pierce County that is open to anyone.
Last year, students and volunteers grew over 50,000 pounds of produce for our school cafeterias, students and their families, volunteers, and our community!
