New Video: Four-Season Farming in the Pacific Northwest

While visiting the Olympic Peninsula during our West Coast KickOff Tour, we stayed on the beautiful Colinwood Farm in Port Townsend, Washington, which has been certified organic since 1989. Over the course of a week, farm manager Jesse Hopkins showed us the ins and outs of running the mid-size farm and explained how greenhouses allow him to grow crops through the cold months of the year. In this video, we follow the life-cycle of an organic zucchini plant from seed to harvest.

If you're having trouble viewing this or any of our other videos, try downloading the latest version of Flash, or view it on YouTube.

Extra special thanks to Jesse, Gina and their son Oliver for putting us up in their sunny home and feeding us delicious organic food!
