This week: Farm Tour includes Matheson Farms – and we’ll be there Sunday!

Events this week include:
Sep 7 & 8: The 13th Annual Whatcom Farm Tour –  includes stops at more than a dozen locations, some on each day: 10am-4pm. “Don’t miss a weekend full of farm adventures and culinary delights — one of the biggest events for September Eat Local Month! The Farm Tour highlights amazing family-owned farms, and is free, self-guided, and family-friendly. See, taste, feel, and learn hands-on what goes into local food production. The tour will have everything from baby cows to hayrides, and provides exciting educational activities at each tour stop.” bellewood photo
Find these in the Tenmile area: Appel Farms (Sat only); Growing Veterans (both days); and on both days our partners at Bellewood Farms will be open for refreshments and shopping.

We have enjoyed hearing Sandra Matheson speak at our meeting, and appreciate the family’s many efforts towards responsible stewardship of land & water in the area. Thanks to the Matheson family for hosting the tour – and us!

Matheson location: 228 E Smith Rd, just east of the Guide.
