César Chávez gave our nation and each of us a unique example to live our lives by. His selfless dedication for farm worker and worker rights, economic justice, civil rights, environmental justice, peace, nonviolence, empowerment of the poor and disenfranchised, is a monumental legacy that will inspire all and the generations to come.
WSC is celebrating César’s spirit of social justice with a special Day of Service on March 31st.
Below are upcoming César Chávez Day of Service projects hosted by Washington Service Corps sites. For Washington Service Corps Members: If you would like us to add your service project to the list, please submit a Day of Service Form.
March 31st – Noon to 1:00 p.m.
Join the Washington Service Corps and earn about the work that ESD Wagner Peyser/Migrant Seasonal Farm Worker Program is doing around providing outreach & services to Farmworkers.
We will be working with volunteers on Cesar Chavez day to weed one of our perennial beds at the seed farm. Weeds this time of year are not too large, and typically weeding looks like kneeling or squatting while weeding with a hand tool. We have tools to supply to any volunteers who need, but you are welcome to bring your own tools if you prefer! No RSVP required, the event will take place from 10-3 on Friday, March 31st at Violet Prairie Seed Farm located at 17843 Gibson Rd SW. We hope to see you there!

Come help the Salmon Center prepare for spring! We will be doing work at the Farm at Water’s Edge and in our native plant nursery. On the farm, we will be preparing the U-Pick gardens for planting delicious veggies that will be available to the community come summer, and in the nursery we will be preparing for the end of the planting season. Volunteers can expect to assist with various tasks such as weeding, mulching, prepping beds to be planted, installing trellising, and heeling in native plants, such as snowberry. The event will take place March 31st from 1:30-4 pm, and volunteers can plan to meet at the Salmon Center garage. Please dress for the weather, wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty, and wear close-toed shoes. Also please bring gloves if you have them! The Hood Canal Salmon Enhancement Group is one of 12 original Regional Fisheries Enhancement Groups, or RFEGs, created by the Washington State Legislature in 1990. There are now 14 RFEGs across Washington State. The RFEGs were created to be active partners in assisting Washington State in salmon recovery efforts, supported by community volunteers. The RFEGs were tasked with supplementing fish populations, restoring salmon habitat, and developing salmon-related education programs. The Hood Canal Salmon Enhancement Group was granted 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation status in November 1990. Our headquarters, The Salmon Center, is located right next to the Union River Estuary and Theler Wetlands, and features a certified organic U-Pick garden and farm that demonstrates sustainable agricultural practices, a nursery that prepares native plants for restoration projects, and a classroom that hosts community education events, as well as youth clubs such as 4H. As an organization we strive to deepen the connection between land, people, and salmon through research, restoration, and education. Our mission is to ensure that wild salmon are once again abundant in the Pacific Northwest.

Help Bremerton Foodline do some spring cleaning for their community garden! César Chávez was a folk hero and symbol of hope to millions of Americans. An ardent advocate of nonviolence, Chávez was one of the most inspirational labor leaders of the 20th century, with an influence that stretched far beyond the California fields. We seek to honor and celebrate him on this day to encourage people to work towards equity for farmworkers and laborers alike.
