The 21st Annual Pierce College Farmwalk is sponsored by the Pierce College Agriculture Department & the Foundation for Pierce College &LOSING THE WEST.

 “Our society is trying too hard to sustain an unsustainable way of life,” saidLOSING THE WEST’s director/producer and 2013 Farmwalk sponsor Alex Warren. “It’s time to come together to protect the land that needs to be protected, the fertile land and the open spaces that preserve the habitat and migration patterns of wildlife. The Pierce College farm is a prime example of what’s happening all over the world and we have the ability to make a difference in our own backyard. If we can’t start at home then where can we start?”

Both the Foundation and LOSING THE WEST demonstrate how each person has the power to positively affect the environment and community, and to take a hands-on approach to making land and food sustainability a reality.
