FARM TOUR: 5-Acre Sustainable Urban Farm

Wednesday, July 8th, 6:30 – 8:30 pm

RENTON, WA

In a rapidly developing area of Renton sits five acres of well-utilized
farmland. Join the King Conservation District to meet a family who is
working to produce their own organic food in a sustainable fashion by
utilizing their yard, garden, lawn and woods. Learn about sustainability
and what that can mean to each of us in terms of reducing our impact on
the land while saving money AND producing healthy food! This family
raises goats for milk and cheese, chickens, ducks and geese for eggs and
meat, vegetable gardens and fruit trees for produce, trees for firewood,
bees for pollination and honey, and grass for livestock hay. Learn about
ways to reduce chemical use, cost-savings on food production, low-tech
gardening techniques such as chicken tractors, and how children can be
an important part of the chore and animal-care routine. We promise…
you will be surprised at the volume and value of healthy food produced
on this amazing family farm!

FREE! To register and receive directions contact the King Conservation
District at 425-282-1949 or signup@kingcd.org — or
