Planting on the Farm – Where Habitat and Agriculture Come Together

Saturday, March 4, 2017

Volunteers are needed to help plant a vegetative buffer along an agricultural drainage near Orting. Establishment of these plants will help intercept and filter run-off from the adjacent fields that may carry sediment, manure, or other pollutants into Horsehaven Creek and the Puyallup River.

Situated just south of Orting, the Shelstad Farm raises beef, chickens, and other products on 36 acres that are bordered on two sides by salmon-bearing waters.  Thoughtful stewardship of the land through projects such as this planting demonstrate cooperative solutions to meet both natural resource protection and farming goals.
