Here at Pine Stump Farms we are working on some, for us, important philosophical goals. A few of them are outlined below by the organizations we are either members of or participate in. We hope you find them as stimulating and worthwhile as we do, and we invite you to join them and learn, as we have.
Slow Food is an international organization that promotes eating local, fresh foods and we have a local chapter that we began in 2012.
Washington Agriculture & Forestry Education Foundation (WAFEF) is dedicated to training leaders for healthy farms, forests, and communities.
Conservation Districts’ goal is to increase knowledge about natural resources and best practices utilization of them as well.
As an outgrowth of Tilth, “The Network” focuses on statewide policy and legislation issues that enhance best practices And sustainability for the environment.
Sponsors connections between farmers and people wanting to travel and learn about new farming practices. Enables people to learn first-hand about organic growing techniques.
Promotes regulations that ensure tree farming as a viable living, educational activities to improve forest stewardship and stress importance of family tree farms.
