The Land

Rooted NW sits on 240 acres of upland farm east of the city of Arlington, WA. The property has been farmed by a local family for over 100 years and we are proud to carry on their tradition of land stewardship. In fact, we specifically sought out farmland at risk of development so we could maximize the positive impact of our project.

The property is a convenient one-hour drive to Seattle or Bellingham and within biking distance to downtown Arlington for groceries, shops, restaurants, and schools —and the Skagit Valley Co-op isn’t far away! Everett airport is 23 miles away.

The land is at 300 feet of elevation and gently slopes to the south, featuring a mix of forest, pasture, and cropland. The way it is nestled into the surrounding landscape provides for plenty of privacy and the farm naturally forms a variety of outdoor rooms.There are at least two ponds and we’re hoping to make more. The soils are fertile and rich. 

Be sure to also keep an eye out for upcoming events including virtual orientations and land tours.


Land Acknowledgement

We honor the first peoples of these lands by acknowledging that Rooted Northwest is within the traditional territory of the Stoluck-wa-mish River Tribe, the Stillaguamish Tribe of Indians. The Stillaguamish people have inhabited these lands and waters since time immemorial and their descendants have remained in this territory to this day. We respect their sovereignty, their right to self-determination, and honor their sacred spiritual connection with the land and water. We will strive to be honest about our past mistakes and bring about a future that includes their people, stories, and voices to form a more just and equitable society.
