    21 Acres is pleased to co-sponsor the annual Farmers Roundtable, Hosted by the Sammamish Valley Grange, and in partnership with the Sammamish Valley Alliance. Join this popular free roundtable event to learn from regenerative farming and environmental professionals with National Resource Conservation Services at 7 p.m. (NCRS), and catch a pre-program presentation from student Neha Krishnakumar about creating Biochar for soil health at 6 p.m. This month’s roundtable with The NRCS: “Funding & Advice To Further Your Farm’s Stewardship Goals.” Register Below!

    Located at the Sammamish Valley Grange: 14654 148th Ave NE in Woodinville, WA.

    The NCRS presentation by Lynn Khuat, Resource Conservationist, and John Larsen, Soil Conservationist, will be an introduction to NRCS programs offered locally in King County and how to begin implementing these services on your farm. Some examples of conservation practices the NRCS supports are manure management, gutters, irrigation upgrades and management, high tunnels, soil health and testing, water quality improvements, wildlife habitat improvements (pollinators, salmon, etc), forest health practices, and much more.

    Arrive early (6 pm) to learn how to make an easy Biochar kiln! Meet Neha Krishnakumar, a high school student working on this project to earn her Girl Scout Gold Award. Neha will teach all you’d need to know to create this practice on your farm or at home. Visit this link to read a recent blog post written by Neha bout the subject. 

    All ages are welcome to attend and meet those who are committed to environmental stewardship and who bring local food into our community.
