Left Foot Organics is a local nonprofit organization helping people with intellectual disabilities and rural youth to gain job and life skills while growing good food for their community. Now in its eighth year, Left Foot offers paid employment experience and is committed to provide the support each individual needs to overcome their challenges and be successful.
On the third Saturday of each month Left Foot hosts volunteers in the morning to come out and help with farm work. The farm then provides a hot lunch for volunteers and following lunch a workshop is put on to provide community members with farm and social skills that are transferable to their everyday lives.
For the month of August workshop Left Foot Organics is present our own Farm Manager, Lydia Beth Leimbach, as she teaches the fine art of bouquet making. Having specialized in growing and raising perennials, natives, and carnations, she will display her keen eye for creating an eye-catching arrangement. Plan on taking your bouquet home with you!
The day begins at 10 o'clock for volunteers and lunch is served at noon! Workshops typically begin around one o'clock. Please come ready to work in the elements!
Left Foot Organics is located at 11122 Case Road SW, Olympia, 98512, just 3 miles from exit 99 off interstate 5.
