Sound Consumer, July 2003
Images of PCC’s history from the July Sound Consumer including past events, store pictures, and many wonderful memories.
When I first started working at PCC thirty years ago, one of a staff of twelve, our only store was on N.E. 65th Street in Seattle. At that time we were virtually the only retailer in the Seattle area providing organic produce. Dungeness Organic Produce organic farm saved by the PCC Farmland Fund is also profiled.
It was 1973 when Seattle’s P-Patch program began, thanks largely to a PCC member Darlyn Rundberg, who is credited generally with making the P-Patch program “happen.” PCC also administered the P-Patch program that first year.
This month: Whit Press has donated 1,000 copies of the book In Praise of Fertile Land to the Farmland Fund, poem “Girl on a Tractor,” Farmland Fund Highlghts, and the donor roster for May 1 — 31, 2003.
