Urban Agriculture Program

King Conservation District (KCD) has launched a new Urban Agriculture program across King County. Utilizing the successful model of Pierce Conservation District's Harvest Pierce County, KCD is working to support community-based urban agriculture through education, technical assistance, partner matchmaking, and help in identifying possible funding and other resources.

On Thursday, Feb 25, KCD invited participants from KCD Member Jurisdictions and community partners to a workshop to discuss the processes for initiating community food projects. Twenty-two people attended that event and discussed barriers, opportunities and solutions to supporting urban agriculture projects in their communities.
