Two nice ways to end the 2016 season – Giving and Receiving!

Working together to end hunger!  Last year, First Light Farm contributed 590 pounds of vegetables to Hopelink, our area food bank.  Besides the gleaning work done by Hopelink, First Light Farm was able to hold its 2nd annual end-of-the-season public glean on Saturday, October 30.  It was once again a tremendous success!

First Light Farm also received King County’s Rural Small Business Award for 2016. What a surprise!  Pictured below along with King County Executive Dow Constantine, Jesse Jones from KIRO, our wonderful staff members Reisha Beck and Maggie Seeds, and Don and myself.  We had fun at the event because we were told to dress for work.  Everyone else was in suits and ties, we were in our farm clothes!
