December 10th, 2015 – December brings forth cold crisp days, with farm fields put to rest to build energy for next season’s harvest. For many who maintain the local farmland base, the coming of winter represents a brief period to slow down, take stock, and begin prep for the New Year. But, one local non-profit working to maintain conserved farmland on the North Olympic Peninsula shows no sign of slowing on their efforts. North Olympic Land Trust has worked with a growing base of landowners to conserve new farmland and they are excited to announce their latest farmland conservation endeavor.
“We are committed to preserving farmland to maintain the cultural heritage of the Sequim Dungeness Valley and as such we are excited to announce our latest effort to secure the funds needed to conserve the Historic Ward Farm North of Sequim”, states North Olympic Land Trust Executive Director Tom Sanford.
“The Historic Ward Farm provides prime farmland for our community and exemplifies land that defines this place. Our community has a strong history of successfully rallying to make farmland remain available for food production for generations to come”, continues Sanford.
