Sustainable Renton Gleaning Project This is Sustainable Renton’s newest project. We need help transporting the food from pick up location to storage or arranged drop off sites. We could always use help during our Free Grocery Store hours, setting up, dispensing food, and cleaning up. Arriving 30 minutes before the store opens and staying 30 minutes after is helpful.
Sustainable Renton Community Farm is always looking for volunteers to weed, water, turn compost piles or lay wood chips on the garden paths. Any of these jobs can happen on any day for any amount of time that you might have available.
Sustainable Renton Farm Stand is looking for volunteers to harvest produce to sell at the farm stand on the second and fourth Friday from June through September. The stand will be erected in front of the Renton Senior Activity Center located in downtown Renton. This task would take approximately two hours on Friday mornings so that the produce is available by 1 pm. This job requires some basic knowledge of what is ready for harvest.
The farm stand also needs volunteers to be at the farm stand for approximately 1 hour chunks of time. This job entails handling money and bagging up produce for customers. This job is currently at the Renton Senior Center the first and third Friday of the month from 12-1. We are adding a second venue this year on the first Wednesday of the month from May through October in front of Brewmaster’s Taproom from 5pm-7pm. Any help is welcomed with this as well.
