Cloud Mountain Farm Center to offer new learning opportunities

May 11th, 2011 | Category: News

EVERSON – The Everson-based Cloud Mountain Farm is working with local nonprofits to create the new Cloud Mountain Farm Center (CMFC) which will focus on providing hands-on learning opportunities for beginning and existing farmers and gardeners, according to owners Tom and Cheryl Thornton. Operating for more than 30 years, the Thorntons have been growing, selling, researching and teaching about plants best suited to the region.
“Our dream has always been to provide a place where people can learn about growing plants and experience the processes that food goes through to get from farm to table”, said Tom Thornton.  “Our focus has always been education and this new center will allow us to develop programs even further for growers as well as consumers,” added Cheryl Thornton. The Cloud Mountain Farm Center will work with market farmers, Sustainable Connections, Kulshan Community Land Trust, WSU Extension and other nonprofits to build an even stronger “growing” community. Additional information will be in an upcoming issue. For more information, call (360) 966-5859 or cheryl@cloudmountainfarm.com.
