WASHINGTON FIBER RESOURCES
Botany Bay Farm
WASHINGTON STATE UNIVERSITY
3rd Saturday in September
This is an annual celebration where multiple farms open their gates to the public to show the bounty of local agriculture in Clark County and give neighbors an opportunity to tour and meet their area farmers. Nearly 600 area residents came out to participate in 2019. There were a variety of fun-filled events such as animal petting, hay rides, self-guided tours, a seed-saving workshop, u-pick produce, family-fun games, and photo ops with alpacas. The farms offered tours and sold farm fresh products.
PACIFIC NORTHWEST FIBER WEB
Pacific Northwest Fiber Web is a registered Washington state cooperative working on optimizing local resource management of fiber production.
Currently we are working on the development of an Olympic Peninsula fibershed, providing fiber growers and artisans an economic return to help sustain their small farm wool raising and crafting traditions.
The Pacific Northwest Fiber Web cooperative was formed out of the need to build an organized
fibershed on the Olympic Peninsula. The concept of the fibershed is to create a networked local textile culture, enhancing regional agriculture while strengthening local economies.
