Alleycat Acres Programs
To (re)connect people with food, we offer and participate in numerous methods:
1. Through farms: We currently have 2 farms sites under cultivation, each having a weekly work party & harvest, open to anybody who is interested in learning to grow food and sharing knowledge.
2. Through bikes: Harvests are shared within the immediate community our farms are located; excess produce harvested that is not distributed to volunteers, is delivered via bicycle to neighboring food banks.
3. Through rural partnerships & crop mobs: Last year, we held one rural crop mob on Whidbey Island; This year, we're planning two: one in Auburn and one in Carnation.
Recent Successes and Current Challenges
This year, in 2011, we were a recipient of the Green Globe Award, presented by King County, for "Leader in Biosolids Recycling and Sustainable Agriculture."
Despite the recognition, to truly keep this effort blossoming, we are in need of having a funded position for a Director.
