Originally published by King County Wastewater Treatment on its clean water stories blog, “CitySoil Farm grows healthy food and community”.
CitySoil Farm is all about partnerships. King County, King Conservation District (KCD), Tilth Alliance, and DIRT Corps joined to create this unique 1.5 acre demonstration garden. Located at King County’s South Treatment Plant in Renton, CitySoil has transformed an unused area of the grounds into a teaching farm for groups like high school classrooms and Tilth Alliance master composter students.
In addition to education, CitySoil also helps feed needy neighbors. In 2016, CitySoil delivered 3,100 pounds of fresh produce to the White Center Food Bank. These deliveries included culturally specific foods requested by the food bank.
