Student Feature – Yes Farm Charrette 5/7/22

The Black Farmers Collective (BFC) is working to develop a 1.5 acre urban farm in Yesler Terrace for community building, educational programming and growing a Black-led farm co-op. Led by UW CEP graduate, Shabazz Abdulkadir, with the help of MLA candidates Leila Jackson and Jiahua Zou, BFC is working to design more welcoming and accessible entrances to the YES farm. On May 7th, landscape architecture students, faculty and professionals gathered for a design charette to discuss and identify opportunities for improving the North entrance of the farm.
