  • At the Bounty Farm, we grow food for the community in community, while also growing new skills and promoting understanding about sustainable agriculture and its role in a healthy food system. Located in the center of Petaluma, the Bounty Community Farm is situated on 3.5 acres of land that has been generously shared by Gottfried Stonitsch and his family since 2007. We employ sustainable agricultural methods to grow over 40 varieties of vegetables and fruits.

    Our 1.5 staff members coordinate all formal and informal learning activities on the farm as we grow food in community for community. Through drop-in volunteer work, academic internships, Sonoma County Eco-Youth Corps- a job training program for youth, service learning projects, corporate workdays and more, we grow over 12,000 pounds of produce annually. The majority of our produce goes to low-income families and seniors in our community who would otherwise not be able to afford locally grown food.

    What the Site is Used for

    Bounty CSA Bags– A partnership with the Petaluma community in which boxes of fresh produce are provided weekly to local families from June to November. As part of the Local Affordable Food Incentives, Bounty Farm actively seeks community sponsors for the Bounty Boxes that are provided to low-income families and seniors, so healthy food is accessible to members of the Petaluma community most in need.

    Bounty Hunters– A food gleaning program in which produce from local farms and backyards that would otherwise go to waste is gathered by volunteers and provided to local kitchens and food pantries. Each year the Farm contributes thousands of pounds of produce to Bounty Hunters for donation to those in the community who are not food secure. Additionally, gleaning trainings for new volunteers are held monthly at the Bounty Community Farm.

    Educational Initiatives – The Bounty Educational Initiative has 3 priorities: 1) Improve participants’ relationship to food through hands-on experiences; 2) Increase individuals’ skills of food cultivation and preparation through workshops, volunteering, partnerships with job training agencies, schools, community organizers and community groups; and 3) Increase awareness of the true cost of food and foster engagement in community solutions. The Bounty Farm hosts formalized instruction through workshops, academic internships, A.L.I.V.E, field trips and job training. Informal, hands-on learning happens daily through service learning, volunteering, and tours.

    Petaluma Farmers’ Market – A popular destination where the Farm sells a wide variety of fresh produce from May through November.

    Bounty Farm Stand/Farmacy – Selling fresh produce at the Petaluma Health Center and the Bounty Farm. The stand is open seasonally from June until November.

    Internships – Whether you’re looking for school credit or are looking for an in-depth ongoing volunteer opportunity to enhance your community farming knowledge and skill set, we will try our best  to craft the right internship to match your skills and goals with ongoing farm needs.  We are proud to be a teaching farm and welcome interns of all ages.  Please contact the Education & Engagement Coordinator at education@petalumabounty.org to inquire.
