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.

So here is a possible farm layout for 2012. This is just a thought at this time. All your ideas are welcome. For example, this plan doesn't show any winter crops. What should we plan for winter? Remember that this is the flood plain and it may be quite wet in the winter.
