- PLEASE NOTE: In response to the most recent guidelines from the CDC and government officials including Tucson’s, Felicia’s Farm will be closed to the general public until further notice.
People struggling with food insecurity will need your help more than ever. If you are able to donate, it is excellent timing. Please click on the top right side of this page on the heart.
Thank You for your continued support of Felicia’s Farm!
When we are open again, we hope to go back to the following:
- We welcome drop-in volunteers on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays only. There is a suggested $5.00 donation at entry. The property is closed all other days/times except for pre-arranged visitors. WE ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC. Felicia’s Farm is closed on weekends.
- Work to be done changes daily, but generally we are weeding and cleaning and turning compost. Harvesting and planting can be exacting work and we generally ask that of experienced volunteers.
- You do not need to prearrange (just come on in!) but for groups larger than 5 people, please contact us at email@example.com to schedule a time. Youth and children are also welcomed, with adult supervision. (Children under 12 yrs need to be accompanied by an adult).
Getting to Felicia’s Farm
Felicia’s Farm is located at 3761 E River Rd, Tucson, Arizona 85718 (behind a private home, please do not disturb residence). Look for pine trees, gates, boulders and Queen palms in front. We are tagged on Google maps.
Look for the side drive and drive in slowly all the way past the horses and park all the way in the back near the horse corral and turquoise ramada. Please do not pick up / drop off or park near the house. If it is necessary to park in the “road”, please pull off to the side as much as possible to allow machinery to pass.
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, 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 the homeless and vulnerable in Tucson that we can. Every task we do contributes to donating 700-1000 pounds of produce each week. Thank You for your interest in helping others in our community. Together, we can help feed those in need in Tucson.
We welcome school field trips, corporate volunteer events and other philanthropic groups (Rotary, 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.
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. Come prepared and you can work the first time you come in. Please pre-arrange court-ordered service; preferably call 520-261-4458 or email email@example.com
