Seed savers pictureIn efforts to continue to provide a program centered around full circle gardening we have opted to create a Facebook group to kick off our exchange of knowledge and build a network of seed savers. We will post educational content, seed exchange information share seed saving stories, and announce events/happenings here for the time being. We highly encourage you to share with us as well!

GOATS GALORE AT GRANDVIEW!

This summer Harvest Pierce County invited some guests down to Grandview to help out with a little natural blackberry removal. Over the 4th of July weekend 200 goats from Healing Hooves made their way into one of the latest community garden developments in Pierce County to clear up as much of this invasive plant as possible. Grandview is situated between the Puyallup Tribe’s Early Learning Center and Roosevelt Elementary School on the Eastside of Tacoma.IMG_6250 This project is in partnership with the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department, the Puyallup Tribe, local Central American Indigenous communities, and other Eastside community members to create an indigenous healing space with the intentionality of fostering relationships with the land, the medicine it provides, and connecting community. This 1.5 acres of land when finished will consist of a children’s garden, a native medicinal plant forest, mushroom cultivation area, a fruit and nut orchard, squash arch, a community garden, as well as ceremonial and seating areas throughout.

The collaboration and creative energy from this group has already brought so much life to the space. This space is still actively being built, and there are many different ways to be involved, from work parties to plantings.
