United Peoples Farm got a shot in the arm from the Sounders FC and Seattle Bank’s United We Serve Program!
Team and bank supporters, fans, volunteers, farmers, and Tilth staff, joined with two Sounders FC players; Josh Ford and Roger Levesque, to make a good day better with work on the composting piles, pulling weeds, moving rocks, and finishing off the irrigation trenches out in the East field.
Seattle Tilth’s Chris Iberle did great work coordinating the visit from the Sounders FC and Seattle Bank’s “United We Serve” team, and staff members and farmers worked on preparing the fields for the coming winter months.
Seattle Parks & Recreation’s Parks Urban Food Systems (PUFS) representative Becca Fong was on hand also to check in and help introduce and answer questions about the partnerships and programs that Parks and Tilth are currently engaged in.
Sounders FC United We Serve community enhancement program in partnership with Seattle Bank, is a monthly side-by-side player and fan volunteer service program. The program provides support for grassroots community based leadership service projects that impact our local community. These projects are led by the Sounders FC fans, supporters, youth soccer players/coaches and civic organizations.
The staff, farmers, and community of United Peoples Farm, as well as all the Tilth community would like to thank Seattle Bank, the Sounders, volunteers, and all of our supporters for their continued work at the farm making this program happen!
See you again soon.
