Intimate Moments: Life on the Farm | Photographs by Audra Mulkern

Audra Mulkern event photoYou might have read about Audra Mulkern in her recent spread in The Seattle Times. Or perhaps you’ve been following her since the early Female Farmer Project days.

If you’re new to the Audra Mulkern fan club, welcome! Audra is a writer, photographer, and fair food advocate who is bringing farming and females to the forefront through the lens of her camera.

In addition to authoring Rooted in the Valley, a book highlighting food growers in Carnation and Duvall, Audra is also the brains behind the Female Farmer Project, a chronicle of in-depth stories about the rise of women in agriculture around the world.  The Female Farmer Project has garnered international recognition, and has been featured in publications such as Huffington Post, Modern Farmer, and grist.

We have had the privilege of working with Audra over the last number of years, and are thrilled to partner with her on her upcoming exhibit celebrating local farms through photography. Her photos chronicle female farmers who, amidst many pressures — family, farm duties, often an outside job — are creating positive change in our food system. Many of her photos feature farmers from our conserved properties, and a portion of Audra’s proceeds from sold photographs will benefit PCC Farmland Trust.

Please join us and Audra Mulkern on August 4th during the First Thursday Art Walk at the Globe Gallery. See our Events page for details.

Earth Day on the Farm

Please join us at Reise Farm in the Puyallup Valley to plant some native trees and shrubs in honor of Earth Day. The Farmland Trust purchased Reise Farm in 2012 and has been working with farmers Jeremy and Angela Sanford to care for the natural resources on the property.

On April 11th, help us 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. And 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!

A snapshot: our Walla Walla farms

In mid May, PCC Farmland Trust held our 2012 Spring Walla Walla Farm Tour with over 100 participants touring two organic farms: the historic Williams Hudson Bay Farm and Bennington Place. With registration nearly full, the tour was split into two groups to maintain the intimate quality of the event but also to minimize the impact on the refreshment tables overflowing with fresh-from-the-oven saucer-sized cookies courtesy of Walla Walla Bread Company and the glistening glass containers full of cool lemonade!
