Black Farmers Collective Teaching Farm Tractor

The Black Farmers Collective is a mutual aid network of Black-led, regenerative farms in partnership with other BIPOC farmers, organizers, and leaders creating a food system for healthier communities. We believe the key to a more sustainable, equitable future for communities of color requires addressing food insecurity and fighting for food sovereignty. Our two sites include Yes Farm and 4 acres located out in Woodinville, both of which are part of our efforts for land acquisition, BIPOC farmer development, community building, educational programs, and growing food.

We are in urgent need of a tractor to start working with our land in Woodinville. The tractor will allow us to cultivate larger plots, allow us to produce more food, and it will also serve as a professional development opportunity because folks will be able to learn about and use the tractor. Ideally, we'd start working in September. 

The 4 acres out in Woodinville is the location of BFC's own teaching farm where new BIPOC farmers can have access to land and start farming with as few barriers as possible. With infrastructure such as a tractor, greenhouse, irrigation system, and more, we will be able to provide a unique support system catered to their needs and to best facilitate learning on the farm.  We just signed this lease in June, and need the tractor as soon as possible to rid of weeds, spread lime & compost to remediate the soil, and plant winter cover crops to get 25-50% of the land ready for our first official season of the teaching farm in spring 2021!
