South of the Sound Community Farm Land Trust (SSCFLT) is a membership based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving farmland and to keeping it farmed forever. Based in Olympia, it concentrates on the areas south of Puget Sound. The organization consists of a working Board of Directors who contribute their commitment, skills, and experience, a part-time Grant Writer/Project Development Coordinator, several dozen volunteers, and a general membership of about 140.
Our Mission: Promoting Vibrant local food and farming systems through community supported farmland preservation strategies, educational outreach, and partnerships that increase opportunities for farms and farmers to flourish.
Support us by becoming a volunteer!
We depend on our members to be active participants in the work we do. There are many ways volunteers can help. You help distribute the Direct Sales Farm Map in late March, represent SSCFLT at public events, serve on a committee, be part of an event team, and more. Also consider becoming a Board Member. The membership elects the Board of Directors, each serving a three year term.
