To learn more about what’s happening at the new Rainier Valley Urban Farm and how you can contribute to this exciting adventure, please come and join us at the next community gathering:
- Event: Rainier Beach Urban Farm Project Community Meeting
- Date: Saturday, June 11, 2011
- Time: 10:00 am – 11:30 am
- Location: Rainier Beach Public Library (9125 Rainier Ave. S. Seattle, WA 98118
After the meeting, if the weather is cooperating, we will go over the farm and get our hands a little dirty. So, please dress accordingly and don’t forget to bring gloves if you are able to stay for the work party!!
Starting this Saturday throughout this busy growing season, Seattle Tilth will be holding weekly work parties on the site to clear and prepare the space for growing. If this Saturday doesn’t work for you, please do drop by the farm any Saturday between 10:00 am – 3:00 pm. Our Rainier Beach Urban Farm is located at 5513 S. Cloverdale St., Seattle 98118. This will be an opportunity for all the family including children to get involved- no farming or gardening experience is necessary!!
Once again, thank you for supporting the community effort to establish the Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlands Project at Atlantic City Nursery. Getting the urban farm idea adopted by the city and being selected as operators is just the beginning. Now we literally have to dig in and make our hands dirty, while at the same time producing some healthy organic food to feed our community. Will you join us?
If you have any questions or need additional information, please feel free to Peter Masundire.
