PCC Farmland Trust events give community members the opportunity to learn about local food and farming issues, either on the farm or closer to home. Attend an event to gain an insider’s perspective of sustainable farming and farmland preservation, while making connections with local farmers and the food they produce. In addition to our own events, we often have informational booths at events or farmer’s markets in the communities where we work.
Be sure to stay up to date on our upcoming events throughout the year by signing up for our monthly e-newsletter, Your Latest Crop of News.
PCC Farmland Trust Events
Planting Party at Shelstad Farm
Help us plant shrubs and trees at Shelstad Farm in Pierce County! Not only do shrubs and trees provide habitat for native pollinators, they create a buffer to protect farm fields and provide shade for livestock. Come get your hands dirty with us and help improve the land at Shelstad Farm. Coffee, snacks, lunch, tools, and gloves provided. Please bring a water bottle and wear comfortable, water-proof clothing.
TASTE Washington on the Farm
Enjoy a gourmet lunch surrounded by stunning scenery at Tahoma Farms, one of our protected properties in the Puyallup Valley. With an outdoor pizza oven and barn offering sweeping views, it’s a picturesque place to sip Washington wines and savor wood-fired bites. Learn from farmers Kim and Dan Hulse about their commitment to sustainable practices and from PCC Farmland Trust about the importance of protecting local farmland forever.
Pierce County Farm Forum
Join us for a day of networking and educational opportunities geared toward Pierce County farmers. The event will include opportunities to visit tables (like ours!), a catered lunch by Arista Pasta of Puyallup, as well as break out sessions on various topics. The day will conclude with updates from the Puget Sound Food Hub.
