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.

Rototilling Complete -- for this year
John and Chris helped survey the plots this evening just as Jerry was finishing the tilling. Jerry worked for 12 hours for us today. He did a great job. All the plots have been tilled twice. They might need a little raking or hoeing but for the most part they are ready for planting. Tomorrow I will send everyone their plot assignments. We have the equivalent of 4 40x40 ft plots available.
