King County Council will be voting on the sale of property in Snoqualmie Valley that will be turned into a confinement dairy using GMOs, Roundup, and synthetic fertilizers. The property, known as the Tall Chief Golf Course, was bought by King Co. in 2013 for ~$4.5 million and the County proposal is to sell the land for just ~$700,000 to a dairy company. We must take action today to stop this sale, King Co. Ordinance 2015-0425. We need our animal welfare and organic farming communities to rally to prevent the sale of Tall Chief and the development of a new industrialized dairy farm in the Snoqualmie Valley.
You can help if you take action on these items ASAP?
