Farm at Franklin Pierce
The Farm is located on land that was stolen from the Coast Salish people, specifically the Puyallup Tribe (spuyaləpabš). We know that our responsibility goes beyond simply acknowledging wrongdoing, and we strive to ensure our work here honors the Puyallup people’s legacy of care, respect, gratitude, accountability, and reciprocity.
The Farm is an 8-acre educational site, including wetland and native restoration planting areas, an orchard, and 2 full acres of vegetables. We host daily high schools classes from each high school in the district, weekly Community Farm Days, weekly adult farming classes taught by Harvest Pierce County, field trips and farm visits throughout the season, and a community garden managed by Harvest Pierce County that is open to anyone.
Each year, student and community farmers grow over 50,000 pounds of produce for our school cafeterias and community!
