What was neat about the Friday night on the farm is that a whole new bunch of people came out as a community to harvest corn for neighbors in need and take home some farm fresh corn for themselves. Attendees also got to see Snohomish County agriculture up close and learn about why it's important to protect our local farmland.
Ebey Island's Importance
Our local, Snohomish County agriculture is hugely important to us for our physical health by eating locally grown food, as a means to protect and preserve our natural resources, and as a way to keep farmers solvent through what they are good at, farming! Ebey Island is surrounded by the Snohomish River as it makes its journey to the Puget Sound past Everett. This land has historically been ag land, and we'd like to keep it that way for generations to come.
For the Stat Keepers!
You harvested about 8750 ears of corn!!!
