For anyone wondering whether our groundbreaking was ceremonial or real, the answer can be found on on the Farm Power website or on a photo page set up by one of our supporters. We didn't waste any time starting construction; Western Washington will keep getting wetter until sometime next spring, so now is as good a time as any in the next six months.
The concrete forms will start being set next week, and work will continue as the weather permits. Pumps are set up to keep water from soaking the site too badly. Once the floor is poured, work on the walls can proceed without getting as muddy. Check in with us before stopping by--it is a work site with heavy equipment, so visitors need hard hats and someone to escort them, but we'd be happy to show you around.
