Volunteer Opportunity: Teach garden and nutrition education with kids this summer!

Do you like working with kids outside? Lettuce Link is looking for volunteers to help with our gardening and nutrition classes at the Seattle Community Farm in Rainier Valley this summer.

We will work with 7-11 year olds from the Rainier Vista Boys and Girls Club to plant gardens, cook healthy snacks, and have a fun outdoor learning experience! 

We are seeking volunteers to assist in teaching classes, engage with students, and share their enthusiasm for healthy eating and gardening. This is a great fit if you're energetic, have experience working with kids, are passionate about educating through an anti-oppression framework, and like the outdoors!

Volunteer Requirements:
  • Attend the volunteer orientation the first week and commit to coming regularly to at least 7 of the 10 classes 
  • Some experience working with groups of kids 
  • Energetic and like to eat vegetables! 
  • Ability to pass a Washington State Patrol background check

  • Tuesdays, June 26th-August 28th, 1:30-4:00pm 
  • Thursdays, June 28th-August 30th, 12:30-3:00pm 

We are looking for 1-4 dedicated, thoughtful, reliable volunteers for each of our garden and nutrition education sessions.

If this sounds like a good fit for you, please fill out a volunteer application and return to Leah at

In order to best serve the children in our program, we will be holding short volunteer interviews to determine how your interests and skills might best fit with our program.
