Community Tides ~ 10/29

Japanese families have a prominent history on the Olympic Peninsula. Joe Kawamoto, until his recent death, owned a picture-perfect farm, north of Quilcene on US 101, and just north of Lake Leland. Joe’s wife, Margie, decided to sell the farm. Enter the Jefferson Land Trust, and the efforts of Margie and family to preserve this historic dairy and farm, owned and farmed by the Kawamoto family for the last 100 years. To tell us more of these efforts and of the sale, Blaise Sullivan, the Jefferson Land Trust’s Stewardship and Conservation Coordinator, and Sarah Spaeth, the Trust’s Director of Conservation and Strategic Partnerships, join Siobhan and Chris for an enlightening and paradigm-shifting conversation about the process.
