There are many ways that you can help Farmer Frog to grow and to grow more food for more people.  You can do so through your volunteer hours, through direct donations or through sponsoring Good Food Treasure Boxes.
You can also become a Farmer Frog member.  By becoming a member you can actually partner with us to learn what we know and further the goal of spreading healthy, sustainable urban agriculture projects.  Here's more information:
$250.00 level – Once we purchased the site and started our classes you will receive a weekend long hands-on training teaching you to grow sprouts, microgreens and mushrooms sustainably in small urban spaces. You will be able to harvest your salad each day.
$500.00 level - This level includes all of the above plus you’ll get a second weekend where you’ll learn to build a fairly simple and inexpensive hoop house so you can grow
food year-round cost effectively.

He'll be in the Seattle area most of next week and at the Seattle Public Library on Wednesday night (after he spends the day with Farmer Frog in Snohomish County--see our previous blog post) starting at 6:00 p.m.  Here are the details:
