A Strong Partnership Only Getting Stronger!

The New Year brought some new changes to our field operations in the Snoqualmie Valley. For the past 15 or so years our restoration crew made Griffin Creek Farm their field headquarters. This was a daily meeting location, an area/container to store our tools and plant materials as well as our vehicles (crew truck, Kubota, and trailer). We appreciate our time spent at Griffin Creek and are forever indebted to Wendy and Andrew for accommodating our needs for so long!

When it came time to look for a new home for our field crew, Carnation Farms was the first location to come to mind. We’ve built a strong relationship with Carnation Farms since we planted our first tree there in 2013 as part of a riparian restoration project. Since then, we’ve partnered on countless volunteer events, hosted our annual Feast on the Farm fundraiser there, and restored miles of the mainstem Snoqualmie River along the property. When asked if we could house our field operations there, farm staff were quick to respond and found a spot near their Garden Center that suits us amazingly well. It was quite a process to acquire a new storage container, build it out and get all our field tools/materials organized, but today we are set up perfectly for success out at Carnation Farms. This set up has also allowed us to partner in new ways. This spring, our field staff have been helping Carnation Farms with their annual plant sale! This connection might not have been made if we weren’t sharing a space with them. Thank you, Carnation Farms!
