Fall 2022

Applications are currently open! Click here to apply.

With our hands on the land at Marra Farm, we will connect with the Earth in reciprocal relationship, gain practical gardening skills, and grow fresh, culturally-relevant produce. We will also learn how to disrupt racism and injustice in the food system dominant in the U.S. through investing in food sovereignty locally and gaining skills for interdependence, such as woodworking, plant medicine, and ecosystem restoration. We will also plan a Fall community celebration.

Every Saturday 9AM-12PM from 9/17-10/29

Where: Marra Farm (Marra-Desimone Park, 9026 4th Ave S, Seattle, WA 98108)

Facilitated by Neli Jasuja and Tayah Carlisle

Other outdoor programs throughout the year:

  • Nature Connections
  • June Container Garden Giveaway Celebration
  • Y-WE Grow Spring Cohort
  • Summer Urban Innovators (South Park and Duwamish Valley youth) – in collaboration with Urban Fresh Food Collective, Resistencia Coffee, and Cultivate South Park
  • South Asian Youth Leadership in Food Justice

I loved getting to plant and harvest vegetables learning about plants, and getting to take home food from the garden and starts!
