Promoting Sustainability in East Jefferson County, WA
This evening program at the Chimacum Grange will reinvigorate the local conversation about growing grains and beans in Jefferson Co, and what knowledge and equipment is needed to support a grain and bean economy.
Bellingham author Krista Rome will be speaking about her book “Growing Grains and Beans in the Pacific Northwest”, and her “Backyard Grain and Bean” Project. Local Farmers Nash Huber of Nash’s Organic Produce and Keith Kissler of Finnriver Farm and Cidery will be speaking on their grain trails and processes, as well as local permaculturists Ellen O’Shea and Norm Norton of Eaglemount Farms.
This event is a community action project of Citizens for Local Food, an action group of Local 20/20. It is co-sponsored by WSU-Extension, Pane D’Amore Bakery, and the Port Townsend Food Co-op. It is generously supported by the Chimacum Corner Farmstand, Farm’s Reach Cafe, the Chimacum Grange and Nash’s Organic Produce and Grains.
