21 Acres in the Heart of Woodinville

The welcome mat is always out at 21 Acres, and this weekend a special invitation is given to come and celebrate Earth Day. Family activities begin at noon and end with a potluck dinner at 5:30pm, designed to encourage everyone to talk about doing something good for the Earth and make a plan to do it.

 21 Acres is one more Woodinville feature that attracts visitors, and makes our area such a great place to live. Located in the heart of town at 13701 NE 171st Street, 21 Acres reflects the agricultural heart of Woodinville. It is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people learn how to grow food, and eat and live sustainably. A farm, a school, and a market, 21 Acres is appropriately set up in an award-winning green building that even has a garden roof.

You’re welcome to stop by and see all the fare it offers, and purchase seasonal produce if you like. Their spring calendar is just ramping up, so check or find them on Facebook and Twitter@21acres to see a daily schedule.

You’ll also see a list of cooking classes that are offered, taught by leading chefs renowned for their expertise, with the focus on cooking seasonally with sustainable ingredients sourced from local farms. Upcoming class topics include Veggie Chop Knife Skills, and Make Your Own Ricotta, Mozzarella and Butter.

Gardening classes also are offered at 21 Acres. Successful Beekeeping Series for Backyards in the Puget Sound and Joy of Chickens: Intro to Chicken Rearing were recently held, and Cooperative Growing in Your Neighborhood is set for Saturday, April 27.

Stop by 21 Acres and see how lucky we are to have this resource so close to home!
