In 2016 Crew Design Inc. leased approximately 2 acres of land to Joel Hollfelder, an organic produce farmer. Tragically Joel passed away in 2019. Joel had plans to participate in the Kent farmers market and had a number of local “farm-to-table” restaurants who sought out his premium greens and other organic vegetables. Crew is currently seeking a new organic farmer to farm the land starting in 2020 and only requires a very modest annual lease, donations to local food bank and some landscaping in exchange for the rights to farm the land. There is a water system, cold frames, a series of raised beds with built in timers and irrigation and a number of other systems already in place making this an easy start to this planting season.
