Description:
Wakulima means “Farmers” in Kiswahili the most widely spoken language in Africa.

Wakulima USA is a farming and food business cooperative. Since started in 2016, we have worked hard to advance small business development and food sovereignty for low income immigrants and people of color in the Puget Sound region. See our website here: https://www.wakulimausa.org

Wakulima USA is looking for 5 acres of land to purchase. We hope to have 10 plots for beginner farmers, 10 plots for youth and 10 plots for senior citizens. These plots will be between an eighth of an acre and a quarter of an acre. The remaining acres will be divided into half acre plots for seasoned farmers who plan on selling their produce at the Wakulima Farm stand and other local farmers markets.

We plan to continue growing culturally relevant foods like terere, sukuma wiki, seveve, kunde, managu, and mrenda.

Our ideal farm will have:
- Good, healthy soils
- A reliable water source (well preferred)
- A storage shed or space to build one
- One or two greenhouses or space to build them
- Electrical access
- Road access

We are interested in King County and South King County.
