Three generous families in our community have pledged $96,000 in matching support of conservation of habitats and working lands in Clallam County. These families will match dollar-for-dollar all donations. That means, every donation to North Olympic Land Trust–up to $96,000–will be matched 1:1, raising a total of $192,000 through this harvest season. Learn more.
Volunteers are still need for clean up! Please reach out to Lexi at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to volunteer.
Celebrate the hands that feed you at the return of our annual Harvest Celebration, a new spin building on the 21-year history of the Friends of the Fields Harvest Dinner!
For over two decades our community has come together each year to support local farmland preservation and all that it provides, including:
· access to local jobs,
· locally grown food,
· open space, and wildlife habitat, and
· continuation of our heritage as a rural farming community.
To date, we have together permanently preserved 25 local farms and proceeds from past Harvest Dinner’s were instrumental in conserving these lands that define this place!
Today, while pressures threaten remaining local farmland we’re excited to share that the pace of farmland conservation in Clallam County is accelerating!
We are thrilled to bring back this celebration in a new form! Please join us out on the land at the Historic Cline-Bigelow Barn, now known as the Holladay Barn after the owners that lovingly care for it. This area just south of Cline Spit has a rich history agricultural history, including its refurbished 1934 barn. See of photos of the barn here.
This special afternoon is dedicated to raising funds to support local farmland conservation. Mingle and catch up with friends old and new, hear about local land issues, and learn about what’s happening on local farms.
Together we’ll enjoy the abundance of our region through a buffet of locally sourced foods prepared by chef John Pabst of Pacific Pantry along with a hand-picked selection of local beer and wine. Note: Our menu is set in advance. Although the meal includes gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan options, not all available dishes will satisfy dietary restrictions.
In recognition of those who tirelessly steward the land and nourish the community, we’ll culminate our gathering by honoring the 2023 Farmer of the Year. We encourage you to nominate your favorite farmer and share stories about their impact here. Nominations are open until August 31st.
Tickets are $75 per person and go up to $100 a person after 9/4. Space is limited and this event tends to fill quickly, so be sure to reserve your spot as soon as possible. Tickets are not sold at the door.
Wondering what to wear? Think barn dance! Wear your clean clothes, but remember that’ll you be out on the land. Have fun with it and embrace the farm spirit!
This is a 21+ event. This is a mixed indoor/outdoor event that will take place rain or shine. The property is mostly flat and level with mixed gravel and grass surfaces. Stairs are required to access the interior of the barn.
If you have questions or concerns, or would like to volunteer for this event, please contact Lexi at (360) 417-1815 ext. 2 or email@example.com.
