Sammamish Valley Alliance (SVA) Celebration events have looked a bit different in 2020 & 2021 due to circumstances surrounding the current pandemic and Covid-19 restrictions. We are happy to announce we’re back — in person for our Fall Harvest Celebration September 25th! We continue to support our local small farms and businesses through virtual, or in-person channels, depending on CDC recommendations for public gatherings at the time of each event.
Coming up is the Sammamish Valley Fall Harvest Celebration, Saturday, September 25th. Plan to join our community as we strive to ensure a long-term growing season, bringing peace, health and happiness to all of our friends and neighbors during this unprecedented time.
In the meantime, if you’d like to learn more on how you can support local farms, visit 21 Acres for some great information provided by 21 Acres, on what you can do to help. We look forward to ‘seeing’ you this year for our seasonal Celebration events. #ThinkLocal
Celebrate the season by exploring the beautiful Sammamish Valley during our annual Fall Harvest Celebration. Stop by the local farm stands, markets and stores that support local agriculture in our beautiful Sammamish Valley. Home base for this event will be at 21 Acres in Woodinville. We’re happy to gather again “in-person.” Come visit with us there, following all current masking requirements, of course, and meet with local farmers and others in support of our local agricultural businesses.
Visit additional locations also during the Valley Celebration, and check out each link below to see what activities might be planned and information on open days/hours of business. We encourage you to purchase local, fresh, pesticide free food that’s grown right in our own neighborhoods. You’ll not only enjoy the beauty as you wander around the Valley, you’ll learn about our environmentally sustainable agriculture community.
Whether you grab some veggies at the farm market, get a jar of honey or jam at your favorite farm store or pick up a gorgeous bouquet from a street side farm stand, your local purchase will impact the economic vitality of the entire Sammamish Valley.
All ages are welcome and activities are free. Plan to join our agricultural community this day, and throughout the fall and winter, as we strive to ensure a long-term growing season, bringing peace, health and happiness to all of our friends and neighbors during this unprecedented time.
We look forward to seeing you again–in person! #ThinkLocal
