Meet Thol — Seattle Tilth Farm Works

“I believe I am going to succeed. I know I will. Because I’m gonna go for it.”
— Thol, Seattle Tilth Farm Works

IMG_2858_editedFor Thol, a participant with Seattle Tilth Farm Works, farming is the start of a new life for him and for his family.

In his previous work in a warehouse, Thol had no sense of satisfaction or feeling of accomplishment. On the farm, the value of his hard work means providing fresh, organic food for the community and his loved ones.

“I believe I am going to succeed. I know I will. Because I’m gonna go for it. I have to go for it,” Thol stated.

Seattle Tilth Farm Works makes it possible for immigrants, refugees and people with limited resources to launch viable farm businesses. We provide access to land, hands-on training, tools and resources for these farmers to create a new future for their families and locally grown food for their communities.

You will truly make a difference with any level of support.

Here’s how your gift helps immigrant farmers like Thol get the support he needs to get his farm business started:

  • $75 funds a training stipend for a new farmer to observe and shadow farm stand operations for one day
  • $150 provides a starter kit of hand tools for one farmer
  • $225 supports professional development for one farmer by covering the registration cost of the 2015 Tilth Producers Conference
