In our commitment to gather together as a community and share our passion for growing, sharing, and harvesting food, we host a number of annual events for the Pierce County community at large. Please see the calendar to register and for more details.
Plants and people have a special relationship through time, and seeds symbolize the stories of that relationship.
At our Seed Swap, people bring seeds for the seed table and family dishes for the potluck. Then, we share stories and memories about seeds and/or plants that have been passed down in our families for generations.
Occurs Annually in March
