Check out our cool new project!
The Sumner Veggie Coop:
The veggie coop is designed to give urban/suburban residents a chance to experience and experiment with agricultural/gardening techniques in a hands on educational environment. Coop members will work together to grow a substantial crop on land graciously provided by the Sumner Community Farm, donating 50% of the harvest to food banks and dividing the rest into equitable shares on a weekly basis. The farm is located just outside of downtown Sumner off 167, a 20 minute drive from Tacoma.
For the pilot season of this project, we are capping membership at 25 individuals.
By the end of the season coop members will have:
