We’ll meet at the farm anytime between the hours of 9:30 and 3:30 for some hands-on farm work winterizing the greenhouse and cleaning up the farm. This will also be a harvest day for the Bothell Community Kitchen. Volunteers should dress for drizzle and bring work gloves, water, and a snack.
Come join us for a Special Event: Field Trials of Bio Char and Cover-Cropping
Friday, October 17th and Saturday, October 18th
Drop-in anytime, 10am – 4pm
Cover-cropping and amending soil is a common practice in sustainable agriculture. We will be constructing test plots to measure Bio Char and Compost vs Agricultural Lime in our cover cropping system.
Actively participate by tilling-in soil amendments, hand-sewing vetch/rye/pea/buckwheat seed mix, and spreading a mulch of reed canary grass.

We are happy to announce our new farm management trio consisting of Rod Crow, Rachel Ringdahl, and Perry Acworth. Perry is the newest member of our team. In this video, she talks about her vision for Morethana Farm.
Join us for a reception and talk with Art Donnelly of SeaChar on August 8 in Tacoma. Art will be discussing his work with biochar in Costa Rica and at Morethana Farm on August 8.
Exciting news! We just found out that Morethana Farm was awarded $5,000 from Seattle Rotary’s Sustainability Committee and $5,000 from the Tamaki Foundation to support the continued development of the farm. It’s a great start to the rest of our farming year!
Join us this weekend for another Morethana Saturday work party, 10am-2pm! We’ll be sheet mulching, building shelves for the greenhouse, and preparing for spring planting. It’s a great way burn some calories and shake off the city for a few hours. Hope to see you there!
