The Sustainable Living & Farming Tour is finally back in-person for the first time since 2016.  The tour was historically organized by Simply Living Farms and was a yearly highlight for community members and tourists alike.  Waste Loop is excited to partner with local farmers and organizations to offer this informative and inspiring weekend as we envision a more sustainable future together.  

The Sustainable Living & Farming Tour is an opportunity for people to learn more about living a simpler and more sustainable life by visiting examples and partaking in hands-on applications in the greater Leavenworth area. 

Over the course of one weekend, participants will choose between various workshop offerings and site visits that educate, inspire, and motivate a path towards sustainable living. Participants will form connections to local  food, the surrounding environment and the people that are 'walking the talk' of sustainability & stewardship.

Workshops throughout the weekend include Tools & Tips for Winter Gardening, Backyard Chickens, Backyard Pollinator Garden Design, Introduction to Pruning, Herbal Medicine Making, a farm glean with Upper Valley MEND , a tour of the new Winton Composting facility and ‘The Reciprocity of Restoration’ with Cascade Conservation District.

The Farm Tour focuses on some of the incredible Chumstick farms including Gibbs Organics, Tierra Farm, Infuse Organics and Snowgrass Farm.   Through the tour, participants will be able to see what organic farming, regenerative agriculture, land stewardship and permaculture look like in practice.  This is a great opportunity to learn from the experience of locals that have navigated the unique challenges of the region and found ways to live a life in tune with nature.

Additional information and registration can be found at  Waste Loop is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that connects with people and businesses to inspire innovative solutions to local waste and recycle challenges, valuing each resource through its lifecycle.
