The History of Agricultural and Land Conservation Activities at Paradise Farm

Farmer Frog is a non-profit with the Mission to grow kids, cultivate communities, and nurture habitats for All Living Beings through Real Food – Sprouting Simple Change. Before COVID-19, Farmer Frog had extensive partnerships with many school districts and schools in the Puget Sound area. We assisted with the design, creation, and management of dozens of edible school gardens, provided externships to teachers, and hands-on STEAM learning opportunities to students from all grades. In March 2020, the schools were closing in Washington State due to COVID-19 and in response to the pandemic we engaged in mass distribution of food in emergency response. In partnership with over 700 organizations, we have distributed 35 million pounds of food since. Along with our Sister nonprofit the National Tribal Emergency Management Council, we are a leading member of the coalition and other organizations such as International Sustainable Nutrition Partners, EastWest Food Rescue, Culturas Unidas Food Network, the Nakani Native Program, The Silent Taskforce, and Global Social Business Partners. During the course of 2020, collectively we have serviced three million food recipients in America, of whom two million people are in Washington State and three hundred and fifteen thousand are Tribal Members. The majority of the community we serve is BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People Of Color).
