Youth 4-H Programs
Many of our chickens, goats, and alpacas are used as 4-H Projects by local youth belonging to the Farm at Water’s Edge 4-H Club. 4-H members come to the Farm on Mondays and Thursdays for 4-H meetings where they learn about livestock, gardening, and record keeping. The kids work with their 4-H project animal throughout the year and show their animal every year at the Mason County Fair.
Please contact our 4-H Club Leader, Mendy Harlow at 360-275-3575 ext. 23 or email her for more information or to get involved. Click here to learn more about the club through a Q and A!
Our non-profit farm relies heavily on the hard work and dedication of our volunteers. Volunteers are always welcome to participate in any farm activity, including vegetable garden maintenance, animal care, construction projects, building and grounds maintenance, and data entry. We also serve as a Master Gardeners Volunteer Site where Master Gardeners-in-training can volunteer their time in order to meet their Master Gardener certification requirements. Staff members are happy to accommodate volunteers of any skill level or age. There is something for everyone here at the Farm! If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out our Volunteer Inquiry Form or contact us.
