Snohomish CD has a passion for the agriculture community and works in partnership with farmers and livestock owners to improve conditions for the land, animals, and the greater Puget Sound. Expert farm planners and habitat restoration specialists are available to offer advice and support that is specific to the property.

The Agriculture Resilience Plan was created with support and guidance from the agriculture community to provide a guide for farmers as they adapt to future challenges regarding climate change and an increasing population in Snohomish County. The goals of this plan are to:

  • Provide information and project funding for farmers to manage for future risk on their farms
  • Develop landscape-scale projects to improve agricultural resilience¬†
  • Protect agricultural lands from subdivision or development
