Urban Farm Hub is a place for you to learn what’s going on in the Puget Sound region’s urban agriculture scene, pick up ideas for your own urban homesteading projects and find ways to connect with local programs with a farming bent. We have both an Urban Farm Hub blog and a Facebook page at www.facebook.com/urbanfarmhub.

I live in Seattle, Washington with my husband, three kids, a rabbit, a dog, six chickens and a rabid desire to cover every inch of my city lot in flowering or edible plants. Come join me on my urban farm and find out interesting and sometimes crazy ways to grow, cook and make your own stuff. I am the founder of the Urban Farm Hub and the primary writer and photographer for the blog.
If you have a story to share send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org; I’d love to hear from you.
After 25 years of gardening near Green Lake, I’m just starting a new garden in Maple Leaf. My partner and I have ambitious plans for a wide variety of edibles, perennials, berries and trees. I’m a long time certified Master Composter and a believer that gardens connect and enhance our communities as nothing else. When not in the garden, I’m playing soccer, skating at Green Lake, volunteering and running my communications company, www.kathleenwarrencommunications.com. After a couple of years as the primary writer for the UFH Facebook page I am stepping back some to work full time on new communication pursuits.
One spring break in college I came home and decided to dig up our front lawn and build two large garden beds. I have not stopped there. I currently live in the woods of Kirkland and have an ever-changing garden. In addition to garden beds and container gardens, I built a chicken coop and have 5 happy hens. I am passionate about urban agriculture because of how rewarding it is to be able to feed yourself from your property. I am also interested in food access and how to change current food systems so that fresh food can be shared with everyone! Being a new gardener I constantly have questions and am exploring techniques. Join me as I learn!
I am currently in South America learning Spanish and volunteering. I am still playing huge amounts of music and learning new ways to grow and cook food. You can follow my travels here.
I have always had an active interest in food and all the joy it brings. I started cooking at a very young age; starting off with pancakes and moving onto pies. My mother has always been interested in sustainable living, although i didn’t always have the vocabulary to label it as such. It wasn’t until the recent resurgence of the green movement that my mom stopped being “weird” and started being cool.
Hello interested readers and urban farm enthusiasts,
