AND A BIG THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HELPS GROW THE NETWORK ... and strengthen Washington's voice for sustainable food & farming!
Our mission is to educate, organize and advocate for food and farming systems to become economically prosperous, ecologically sound and socially equitable.
Our vision is a vibrant food and farming culture across Washington State. We envision empowered networks of individuals, farms, organizations, businesses, and institutions dedicated to sustainable agricultural practices, a fair and prosperous farming sector and access to healthy food for all.
Network members include farmers, environmental organizations, farmers' markets, faith-based groups, the natural foods industry, farming organizations, community organizations, anti-hunger and nutrition advocates, food co-ops, educators and individuals like you who are investing in a healthy future by supporting sustainable agriculture.
Through education, grassroots organizing and policy advocacy, The Network has become a leading voice for sustainable agriculture and a key catalyst for change in food and farming policies and practices in Washington State. Working together we seek to create a more sustainable agricultural system for Washington. We advocate for programs and policies that:
- Support and encourage family farms
- Promote local production and consumption of food and fiber
- Ensure good stewardship of the land
- Promote community economic, environmental and social well-being
