Nash Huber and PCC Farmland Trust are hosting a tour of his Delta Farm and farming operations on Jan. 16.
The tour focuses on farmer-to-farmer education and networking of ideas for sustainable practices.
The event is a chance to glean wisdom from Huber, famous for his organic farming methods and for training future farmers.
Guests will bus between the 400 acres that Huber farms and observe the impact of development on the area. Since 2000, Sequim’s population has grown by more than 30 percent and the uncommonly valuable farmland surrounding the city has been increasingly subdivided and developed.
Other local farmers will present their views and discuss other trends and challenges facing sustainable agriculture in the region at a panel presentation in the evening.
PCC Farmland Trust secures, preserves and stewards threatened farmland in the Northwest, ensuring that generations of local farmers productively farm using sustainable, organic growing methods. The trust takes its mission one step further than most land trusts by working to place farmers on protected properties, actively producing food for the local community. Huber was named American Farmland Trust’s 2008 Steward of the Land.
The Sequim Gazette is located at 147 W. Washington Street in Sequim.
