Clark County uses a site management model that engages individuals with hands-on experience and expertise with agriculture, sustainability, historic preservation, education and environmental stewardship. The non-profit Friends of the Farm Foundation is also established to oversee fund-raising and donations.
Farm Advisory Team Meetings are open to the public and scheduled for the fourth Thursday of every other month (January, March, May, July, September. So as not to conflict with Thanksgiving, the November meetings are typically scheduled for the third Thursday) and start at 4:00 pm.
The next meeting of this group is scheduled from 4:00 - 5:30 pm Thursday, September 24 , 2020. In order to comply with Governor Inslee’s Safe Start Washington phased reopening plan, the Heritage Farm Advisory Team will meet via WebEx. The meeting agenda is available below.
To participate in the meeting please call 1-408-418-9388 and enter access code 146 148 6709. Submit public comment to: Patrick.Lee@clark.wa.gov by noon of the meeting date and comments will be read and addressed during the meeting.

Farm Site Technical Advisory Board
The Farm Advisory Board is composed of six individuals appointed for their expertise in the above areas. They review all proposals for use of the 78th Street Heritage Farm for consistency with the Master Plan Vision, Guiding Principles and Operating Principles and recommend disposition of farm use proposals to the county. This group meets as needed. Due to potentially confidential discussions with proposers, these meetings are not open to the public. New proposals received and Board recommendations are reported out at Farm Advisory Team meetings.
