Plowing Bee at Mother Earth Farm in Puyallup - April 2nd

Mother Earth Farm, in the Puyallup Valley, is part of the Emergency Food Network. Mother Earth Farm provides more than 80,000 pounds of fresh fruit, vegetables, and herbs to Pierce County food banks annually. A great deal of the labor of seeding, weeding, irrigating, harvesting, and produce-cleaning at the farm is done by volunteers. Each year, a few volunteer teamsters get together and plow a portion of the farm's vegetable plot, in preparation for the spring planting.

This annual event is scheduled for April 2nd but is always at the mercy of the weather. Spectators are strongly encouraged to call (253) 584-1040 or check the EFN's web page prior to the event, to confirm that it will go on as planned.

Teamsters who wish to participate in this cooperative plowing bee should call Greg Johnson at (253) 847-0881.

Mother Earth Farm is located at 15208 102nd Street East, just off State Route 162 in Puyallup. From Hwy 410, take the Sumner exit and go south on SR 162 for two miles. Turn east (left) on 102nd, which is narrow and more closely resembles a driveway than a road. Be advised that parking can sometimes be a bit limited at this event.
