Step off the Sammamish River Trail and Celebrate Summer
Support our local farms and businesses during the annual Sammamish Valley Summer Celebration. In conjunction with our partners, we strive to bring our friends and neighbors the knowledge and resources to discover where, and how, food is grown and the agricultural connection to our community. Join us at the Sammamish Valley Grange Heritage Garden, along the River Trail, Saturday, July 22nd, 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Highlight for the day is a free, family-friendly event featuring John the Falconer and His Birds of Prey. Beginning at Noon in the Grange Heritage Garden, you’ll experience how these raptors fit into our natural world, provide a needed service to farmers and gardeners, and be inspired by these winged ambassadors. We’re so happy to bring John and his feathered friends back for this popular presentation in conjunction with the 2023 SVA Summer Celebration.
The Garden is accessible via the Sammamish River Trail, located 1/4 mile south of Wilmot Park in Woodinville. Or, 3/4 mile north of the baseball fields in the Hollywood District of Woodinville. (See map.) This free event is open to family and friends of all ages. If you are unable to walk or ride the trail, there is very limited on-farm parking Contact Tom Quigley for special parking arrangements; email@example.com or 206-850-2643. (RSVP is not required but we encourage you to register in advance here on Eventbrite.)

Viva Farms-King County Student Farm & Farm Business Incubator
16215 140th Place NE
In partnership with SAgE Collaborative (Sustainable Agriculture Education), our King county location is in the Sammamish Valley on the urban fringe of the greater Seattle metropolitan area. Like our original Skagit Valley farm business incubator, the Woodinville site offers land, equipment, infrastructure and training for beginning farmers to launch independent farm businesses. The urban incubator is comprised of smaller-scale and more intensive farming operations that reflect the location of the site and proximity to a larger urban center.
