This co-op is operated by volunteers like you and me. Are you interested in helping us grow to better serve the Seattle urban farming community? This is a great opportunity to make valuable connections, learn from your peers, and have some fun working for a great cause. We have immediate needs for a few more urban farmers to work regular sales shifts at the warehouse. Other opportunities inlcude organizing and maintaining our tool library, event volunteers, inventory team, and more. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to plug in and contribute your time and energy to our success. No experience necessary.
Welcome to the Seattle Farm Co-op!
The 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 Seattle Farm 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 potlucks with Backyard Barter to harvest parties to classes about chicken culling or beekeeping, rest assured there is never a dull moment. As well, each function serves to connect people in the area and create a network of individuals rich in education, passion and skills.
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, vegetables, 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!
In our attempt to reach out further and really engage everyone together in conversation, we have created this blog. Local writers, bloggers, warehouse employees, and Farm Co-op members 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. Your participation is vital! Comments are always welcome!
