The Red Barn Community Farm is in the Lowell Neighborhood, Everett, WA. It lies in the 100-year flood plain of the Snohomish River. The soil is rich bottom soil, Puget Sound Silty Loam. It has been well drained with ditches and a drainage canal. The farm is part of a 400 acre area owned by the City of Everett. 2011 is our first year as a Community Farm.

First Work Party June 25, 2011
We had a great turnout for the first planting of the Food Bank Farm portion of the Red Barn Community Farm project. About 25 people planted potatoes, green beans, carrots, kale, cabbage and tomatoes. We will go another planting of green beans in two weeks (July 9, 10 am). Maybe by then we'll find something else to plant also.
