In these challenging times, the community’s land base continues to serve as the bedrock of our culture, our economy, our homes, and our daily lives. We love where we live, and we know that the conservation of land for farms, fish and forests will pay direct dividends back to our own quality of life. In the past 30 years, the Land Trust has permanently protected over 3,500 acres of irreplaceable land in Clallam County. As we look ahead to the next 30 years, we anticipate evolving challenges due to climate change, population growth, and competing land use interests. The work of conserving farmland, wildlife habitat, and forests for future generations is more important now than ever.
We won’t be able to join together for an in-person Harvest Dinner event this fall, but the Land Trust continues to work diligently toward our community’s shared conservation goals. Your ongoing support is vital in these challenging times.
While supplies last, donors who choose to support the Land Trust this summer at $150 or higher can opt to pick up a Harvest Farm Share on September 19th. Donations in increments of $150 are able to receive more than one Farm Share, and shares may also be gifted. These selections are available on our donate page.

What to expect in your Harvest Farm Share:
Farm Shares will feature a collection of fresh seasonal produce and goods exclusively from our local farms and producers, all packed in a beautiful limited-edition reusable Land Trust tote bag. We estimate that each share will take care of two people’s produce needs for a couple of days (depending on how central veggies are to your diet). While the exact details of the bounty for the Farm Shares are currently under development, we do know that you can expect local greens, beets, carrots, apples, potatoes, onions, garlic, salad dressing, lavender and more! Harvest Farm Shares will be available for pick up in either Port Angeles or Sequim on Saturday, September 19th.
* It has come to our attention that the Farm Share pickup date was unintentionally scheduled during Rosh Hashanah. If you will be observing Rosh Hashanah on Sept 19th, please let us know and we will arrange for you to pick up your Farm Share on an earlier date. (360) 417-1815 or email@example.com
