WA FarmLink Networking Event & Open House
March 10th, 2012; 10am - 1pm
Sturgeon Farm, Orting, WA
FREE. Registration at Brown Paper Tickets.
Hosts: FarmLink/Cascade Harvest Coalition and PCC Farmland Trust, in partnership with the Trust for Public Land. This event is sponsored by the WSDA/USDA Specialty Crop Block Grant Program.
Join us on Saturday, March 10th to learn more about Cascade Harvest Coalition's FarmLink program, where landowners and farmers seeking land are connected as well as the work of PCC Farmland Trust to preserve and maintain working organic farmlands. The open house will showcase the Sturgeon Farm, a great 102 acre property available for purchase, right next door to PCC Farmland Trust's Orting Valley Farms. There will also be an opportunity for land seekers and landowners to network with a simple speed dating activity.
We will have sandwiches and drinks available. Please feel free to bring a side, salad, or snack to share. Please bring appropriate footwear for touring the farm and outerwear for weather. We'll be outside.
