PCC Farmland Trust is dedicated to saving farmland forever, but our work doesn’t end once a farm is saved. Because we conserve properties in perpetuity, the Stewardship Team is tasked with ensuring that their environmental and agricultural values remain protected forever. Volunteers play an integral role in our work. Without their assistance, these projects would go unfinished.
April 11th – 9am – 12pm, Celebrate Earth Day at the Reise Farm! [REGISTER + MORE INFO]
Help improve water quality and biodiversity along Ball Creek by planting native trees and shrubs. We’ll work with experts from the Pierce Conservation District to ensure this portion of the creek is a healthy home for the many creatures on the property including many species of birds, beavers, coyotes and other critters. With any luck, farmers Jeremy and Angela Sanford will take a break from their busy day to give us a tour of the property and introduce us to Willy, their massive pig! Lunch will be provided.
