Getting to Felicia’s Farm
We are located at 3761 E River Rd, Tucson, Arizona 85718 (behind a private home, please do not disturb residence). We are tagged on Google maps. Look for pine trees, gates, boulders and Queen palms in front. Look for the side drive and drive in slowly all the way past the house, and park anywhere by or beyond the horse stalls.
There’s also a bus stop close to the farm at River and Dodge, which drops at the Jewish Community Center “JCC”. From there, head north across East River Rd and go east to 3761. Plan your bus trip here; https://infoweb.suntran.com
Feel free to bike in too!
Our main packing shed is where you will find the red sign-in binder. Any farm team member will be happy to get you started! Ask for Alex or Cathy.
You will want to wear closed-toe shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty. Bring a water bottle (or 2!), a hat, and gloves if you have them. Remember, this is a working farm, and it’s important to protect yourself and come prepared. We have tools and will give you instructions on how to help.
Duties are determined each morning; you may be weeding, planting, digging or one of the many farm tasks we do to donate the most food to Tucsonans in need that we can.
We welcome school field trips, corporate volunteer events and other philanthropic groups (Scouts, 4H, U of A clubs, etc.) However, we do not always have enough work for large groups…but then other times we do! Send us an e-mail and let’s talk.To help at the farm, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for your interest in helping!
We will provide a letter or email to verify your service hours at the farm. Please ask where to sign-in for community service to make sure hours are logged properly. Just drop in Monday,Wednesday or Friday only and ask to speak to any Farm Team member.
