Clean Greens Farm and Market
Clean Greens is a small nonprofit organization, owned and operated by longstanding African American residents of Seattle's Central District. We established this organization to supply fresh, sustainably grown produce at affordable prices low-income families in Seattle’s Central District. Low income communities frequently do not have access to fresh, wholesome produce and have higher rates of poor diet related illnesses such as diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, and elevated cholesterol. We are committed to delivering quality produce to those families who otherwise would not have access to it.
Founded in 2007, Clean Greens seeks to educate our communities on healthy eating and food justice. In addition to our two farm stands in the Central District and Columbia City neighborhoods of Seattle, we also offer affordable produce through our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program. Through this program, all residents are able to purchase fresh produce directly from our local farm, located in Duvall, WA, just 25 miles outside of Seattle. Our produce is often harvested the same day it is delivered. As we grow our programs, we hope to create green jobs for our community that are both environmentally and economically sustainable. Through our food justice work, we are able to build partnerships and forge meaningful relationships throughout Seattle, with sister organizations working in other states, and abroad
Our organization is entirely volunteer-run!
We welcome any and all to come volunteer whatever skills you have on our farm, at our farm stand, or in our office. Click here for current volunteer opportunities, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
