Sunflower Field

"Field of Sunflowers at the Harvest Fair"

If any of you city folks are hankering to get out of town on a beautiful day and hang out with chickens, donkeys,  goats and more, check out the extensive lists of farms that are available to tour tomorrow on September 24th. The fun continues on Vashon Island September 25th and Pierce County will be hosting the farm tour on October 1st. All events are from 10:00 – 4:00 and hosted by WSU Extension Service.  This truly is a great opportunity to visit some of the farms that supply our farmer’s markets, PCC and CSA’s (Community Supported Agriculture). I have attended the tours on Vashon Island and in the Snoqualmie Valley and can tell you from those experiences I saw my very first biodynamic brew being stirred, catnip oil being distilled, fields of dinosaur kale, a chicken tractor in motion and met a friendly volunteer who has become a great gardening mentor and friend. Check out the links below and find details and maps to help guide your way.
