Join us on September 30 for a multi-farm restoration party in Tacoma!
After protecting farmland in the Puyallup Valley for nearly a decade, we signed on to lead the Farming in the Floodplain Project in 2015 – a pilot project along Clear Creek in Tacoma aiming to meet multiple community and environmental needs in response to flooding. Through our research, we learned that drainage issues are some of the biggest problems farmers face in the Clear Creek community.
In order to support farmers in this area, we are aiming to plant over 1,500 native trees and shrubs along an agricultural ditch that runs adjacent to Inch Acres Farm, Early Bird Farm, Zestful Gardens, and other neighboring properties. The trees and shrubs we plant will help shade out invasive species, which will improve water flow, restore fish habitat, and contribute to the long-term agricultural viability of the farms along Clear Creek.
Join us and our partners at Pierce Conservation District for a day of planting fun! Coffee, lunch, and tools provided. Parking information will be emailed upon registration.
