Pumpkin Spice Lattes, butternut squash soup, falling leaves, and sweaters – all signs of autumn in Seattle. But for the growing number of Seattle Urban Farmers, autumn is a time of harvest. More and more Seattlites are looking toward local and sustainable living, and you can’t get more local than growing food in your very own urban garden.
The 3rd Annual Harvest Party, hosted by the Phinney Neighborhood Center and Seattle Farm Co-op, is a celebration of Seattle’s growing urban farming community. Attendees can barter for local goods (no money allowed!), enjoy a family potluck (bring something to share), burn off all that food with some square dancing, and get a copy of the newly released The Urban Farm Handbook.
Become an inaugural member of the Seattle Farm Co-op as a one of the many Urban Farmers in Seattle. The Co-op works to provide supplies “such as animal feed, fertilizers, mulch, seeds, etc., from local and sustainable sources as much as possible, and saving money through co-operative purchasing.”
