Event Description

Learn and farm alongside Celt and Krista during this afternoon of tending the seed variety trials out at the Backyard Beans & Grain Project site in Everson, WA.


Co-sponsored by Transition Whatcom


Learn about the specifics of growing different varieties of dry beans and grains, including millet, amaranth, oats, wheat, barley, dry corn, lentils, garbanzos, common beans, soup peas, soybeans and more! After the work party we will provide a light homegrown dinner of beans, cornbread, and salad. We can also offer some free seed from this year's harvest to interested work-traders.


Bring gloves, hoes if you have them, water and a hat. Call or email Krista at 224-4757 to RSVP and get directions. RSVP required, please don't just show up and wander around the farm, as we are located on a working farm among several busy farming operations.

Sorry to miss Krista & Celt- I'll be on the other side of the mountains!  Let me know your upcoming dates so I can plan to hoe hoe another time!
