Seattle Tilth Wins Environmental Catalyst in Green Globe Awards

King County

Seattle Tilth took home the top award for what it has done to increase access to locally grown, affordable food.

Here's an excerpt from the story:

King County Executive Dow Constantine on April 20 honored 14 businesses, cities, organizations and people for the work they’re doing to protect and improve the local environment. The Green Globe Awards are the County’s highest honor for local environmental efforts.

The nonprofit organization Seattle Tilth today took home the top award for what it has done to increase access to locally grown, affordable food.

“Everyone in our region benefits from the work that the Green Globe recipients are doing, whether it’s creating a local farm-to-table pipeline, preserving open spaces, restoring natural habitats, or confronting climate change,” said King County Executive Dow Constantine. “Not only are they protecting our environment – they’re improving our quality of life.”

The top honor – the Environmental Catalyst Award – went to Seattle Tilth, whose work complements Executive Constantine’s Local Food Initiative by creating a sustainable farm-to-table pipeline that supports local farmers and improves human health by increasing access to healthy foods.
