The Seattle Farm Co-op was created with the express purpose of giving urban farmers better access to feed, tools, supplies and a supportive community of like minded folks. We source our feed as locally and organically as possible and offer a wide range of supplies, classes and gatherings to help all urban farmers get the most out of their farming experience.
The Co-op hosts gatherings and classes and teams up with area organizations such as Seattle Tilth and others to create a rich environment of activities for participants. From harvest events with educational workshops, music, dancing and Backyard Barter to on site classes throughout the year like beekeeping, soap making and seed saving, rest assured there is never a dull moment. Each function serves to connect people in the area and create a network of individuals rich in education, passion and skills.
Red Ranger Meat Birds
Supplies, classes and know how revolve around anything related to urban agriculture. Beekeeping, keeping goats for milk and cheese production, chickens for eggs and meat, rabbits for meat and manure, worm and black soldier fly composting, gardening, canning and preserving, and local culture and food will all be featured. Keep coming back to the blog for information related to these topics and many, many more – there’s always something new going on! At the warehouse it is more than likely that you will pick up good conversation along with your bag of organic layer pellets. The one thing about us urban farmers – we love to talk about it!
Annual Members’ Meeting Potluck & Barter
Our ScratchPad blog was created on this site to reach out further and really engage everyone together in conversation. Local writers, bloggers, Co-op members, warehouse employees and volunteers all contribute to create an online meeting place for people in the Seattle metropolitan area to talk, exchange ideas and get informed about future community events. Through Yahoo Groups, the Co-op also hosts an online community of over 1000 mostly local urban farmers, experienced and beginner, who regularly share a wealth of information and resources.
