Farm future crux of Port meeting

December 29, 2012 · Updated 9:58 AM

A volunteer committee examining the operations of the Greenbank Farm will make its recommendations during a special meeting next week about how the publicly owned farm should be managed.

That meeting takes place at 9:30 a.m., Wednesday, Jan. 2, at the Coupeville Public Library.

The committee has been working for approximately six months researching the farm’s operations and writing new recommendations about how the farm should be operated after the contract with the Greenbank Farm Management Group expires.

That contract ends March 31, 2014.

The group made news last fall when its original chairperson, Georgia Gardner, resigned and notified the management group of possible financial irregularities and inconsistencies.

The Port of Coupeville, which owns the farm, hired its accountant, Freeland-based Chuck Edwards and Associates, to investigate. Port officials want the investigation complete by the end of the year in time for the Wednesday meeting.
