Vegetable and Poultry Farm Walk

Thursday, September 13, 2018

Visit this 11-acre vegetable and poultry farm just 5 miles from downtown Tacoma. This farm deals with water limitations due to poor drainage and poor access to water. Come learn how they’ve worked around these issues and what you can do on your farm. In addition, we’ll be learning about their pastured poultry operation and how it complements their diverse vegetable operation. Finally, this producer recently took advantage of a USDA Rural Development Rural Energy Assistance Program grant to install solar power on the farm. Come learn about that program and how Pierce CD can help you manage farm energy more efficiently!

A Pierce Tilth group pizza and salad social will follow immediately after the farm tour. Come for both the tour and dinner, or feel free to join just for the Pierce Tilth portion. A $5/person donation is requested towards the purchase of pizza.
