Changing Seasons Farm is a small family farm growing a wide variety of vegetables using ecologically sustainable methods. Their produce is Certified Naturally Grown, and the farm is Salmon-Safe certified. The farm provides produce to people in the Seattle – Eastside area through on-farm purchase. They also offer Consumer Supported Agriculture (CSA) boxes that are available for pick up at the farm and in Issaquah, Washington.

Join us and the UW Climate Action & Sustainability Team as we maintain restored riparian habitat at Changing Seasons Farm along the Snoqualmie in the scenic Snoqualmie Valley. We’ll perform restoration site maintenance on past planting areas by clearing the area of invasive plants, digging our blackberry roots and preparing the sites for fall planting. The project site may be located on relatively rough terrain and there is a fair amount of walking involved.
