From a meeting of 800 producers at a farm in Ellensburg in 1974 to a network of thousands of food system professionals and activists spread throughout the Pacific Northwest, the Tilth community has had a profound impact on our region’s food culture over the last 50 years.

Join us for Cultivate & Celebrate, a memorable evening supporting Tilth Alliance’s work as we honor our history and look forward to our next 50 years. The evening will include a special reception, small plate tasting menu, an online auction, and more.

  • Sunday, July 28; 5-8 p.m. 
  • Rainier Beach Urban Farm & Wetlands (5513 S Cloverdale St, Seattle 98118) 
  • Suggested attire is “farm fancy” or evening casual with comfortable shoes to move around the farm with ease. 
  • Guests must be 21+. 

Your support at Cultivate & Celebrate goes directly toward championing organic and regenerative farming, promoting community gardening, and expanding access to healthy and nutritious food.
