Groundbreakers welcomes all men, women and youth, regardless of ideology, religion, and social background, at their abundant 2 acre community farm. Located in the Snoqualmie Valley, focus is placed on small-scale, biodynamic agriculture practices that emphasize organic and ecologically-conscious farming and the importance of local food systems. The heart of the farm operation includes access to 6 propagation houses, watering equipment, tools, seeds, and some of the richest soil in the state. It also provides an ideal space for hands-on activities, large scale demonstration projects, and for growing a variety of plants, vegetables and herbs. Farm operations are primarily supported through private and corporate donors, and grant opportunities. A small portion of funding is received through the sale of organic produce.
The Community Garden has twenty 12'x12' plots available for use by students and volunteers for free. Groundbreakers will provide organic certified seed, irrigation and tools. In exchange, Groundbreakers asks that the owner of each plot volunteer and maintain responsibility for weeding and harvesting food for 2 of our farm beds (approximately 900 sq. ft.).
Land availability may be limited. Donations are welcomed and help to cover operating costs (i.e. purchasing seeds, tools, and gardening literature) for the Community Garden.
