Agriculture Community of Interest

The Puyallup Watershed Initiative (PWI) is a 10-year effort in the southern portion of Puget Sound. It is focused on improving social and environmental conditions in the watershed while bringing
community organizations, agencies, businesses and funders together for our common good.

The Agriculture Community of Interest (AgCOI) is a community-based collaboration actively focused on supporting an economically-viable and environmentally-sustainable agricultural community in the Puyallup Watershed and greater Pierce County.

The AgCOI envisions a future in which healthy, safe, secure, and sustainable food production is inextricably linked to the economy and to the quality of life of the local community.  To achieve that goal, the Pierce Conservation District is among many partner organizations and farms active in strategy working groups.  PCD leads the strategy on balancing the social, economic, and environmental benefits on agricultural land, and is active in several others.  The COI Coordinator is also housed in the District.
