Seattle Tilth news -By Andrea Platt Dwyer, Executive Director.  For several months, Seattle Tilth has been exploring the possibility of merging with one of our sister organizations, Tilth Producers of Washington. Tilth Producers is a statewide organization serving a membership of approximately 500 farmers. Their mission is to promote ecologically sound, economically viable and socially equitable farming practices that improve the health of our communities and natural environment. Our organizations share a common ethic—a commitment to a way of growing that is sustainable, regenerative and healthy. We also share deep expertise and commitment to experiential, peer-to-peer education.
