Help Us Create Our Future

Our Seattle Farm Co-op retail and warehouse space on South Jackson Street has been sold and exhaustive searching has not yet resulted in a new home so, sadly, retail operations of the SFC are suspended for the time being.

We are so grateful to our member-owners and all our customers for supporting the SFC feed and seed store.  We still need your support during this hiatus.  We’re all needed to participate in the discussion and to volunteer to do the work needed to sustain our Co-op.  You can help us in a number of ways:

    • Send us leads on possible retail/warehouse space.
    • Consider serving on the SFC Board of Directors for the next term beginning in January 2015.  Elections are coming up soon!
    • Volunteer as an “Interim Director” and work with the current board of directors between now and the January elections.  This is a great way to determine if board membership is right for you while providing much needed help to the Co-op.
    • Join the SFC Feasibility Study Group.  This group will be digging up valuable information that will be used to determine feasibility of future retail operations for the Co-op, as discussed at the Annual Member Meeting on October 12th. (Click here to view meeting minutes from the SFC 2014 Annual Member Meeting.)
    • Attend a Board meeting.  The Board of Directors meetings are held on the first and third Tuesdays of each month at 6:30pm in SE Seattle.  If you’re interested in serving as an Interim Board Member or running for an open Board Member seat in the upcoming elections or working on the SFC Feasibility Study Group, please plan to attend the next SFC Board meeting on Tuesday, November 4th.  RSVP by sending email to steering@seattlefarmcoop.com so we can send you location directions and so we know how many to expect. 

For more information, please send email to info@seattlefarmcoop.com.

Thank you,
The Seattle Farm Co-op Board of Directors

Welcome to the Seattle Farm Co-op!

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 like 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.

Supplies, classes and know how includes 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 are all featured. At the warehouse it is very 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!

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.
