Located at the tip of the Hood Canal, the farm is comprised of a 38 acre farm with a U-Pick garden, P-Patch, pumpkin patch, chickens, goats, alpacas and llamas. Staff and volunteers are dedicated to providing the community with a place to acquire fresh vegetables and learn how agriculture and salmon ecosystems can coexist. Currently, the farm holds Organic Certification through Washington State Department of Agriculture. HCSEG works on many projects throughout the Hood Canal watershed, including fish projects, habitat projects (culvert replacement, bank stabilization, derelict gear removal, noxious weed removal), water quality monitoring, education and sustainable agriculture. IP members will primarily be responsible for coordination of sustainability program, aimed at educating community members on healthy behaviors and sustainable agriculture.

We need this person to be able to serve the public of all ages and be capable of mentoring volunteers and other crew members.
