On Saturday, October 26th we’ll gather for an evening of local food, music, art and the company of friends who have taken part in growing Organic Seed Alliance from an idea to a vibrant organization that is successfully addressing the urgent seed needs of farmers.
Help us celebrate our 10-year track record in innovative research, education, and advocacy, and learn about where we’re headed next by reserving your seat today at our website.
Seed: Potential and Inspiration, an exhibit of local art, will grace the walls at the anniversary event. We are honored that so many Port Townsend artists are contributing art to support our work with farmers to develop regionally adapted, organic seed for our local food system. Preview the art here, and check back often to see new contributions.
Registration closes Thursday, October 24th. Be sure to reserve your place today!
A special thanks to our table hosts, Port Townsend Food Co-op, Nash’s Organic Produce, and Chimacum Corner Farmstand. Are you interested in hosting your own table at our anniversary celebration? If so, please email us to reserve your place.
