Local Partnerships to Promote Healthy Living
ChildTrek believes in the "Think Global. Act Local." movement. We believe in local business models with a global health intent. To this end, we are partnering or featuring small businesses committed to healthy living. The goal is to help our customer become aware of health-centric and family-oriented resources in the area and to strengthen local economies. Partnership-based offerings can be found on this page.

The following are local resources within the Tacoma vicinity and a little beyond. They are businesses that are committed to healthy living or have a family-oriented connection.
TINY'S ORGANIC FARM
Tiny's Organic Farm is located in East Wenatchee, WA close to the Columbia River in a superb microclimate with weather conditions ideal for growing a variety of fruits and vegetables over a long season.
ChildTrek is a volunteer CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) drop-off site for Tiny's in the Tacoma area. As a CSA partner or member, the community supports the farm by not just being a customer, but a farm "share" holder for the season.
As a CSA member, you pay in advance for a "share" of the farm’s seasonal harvest. This helps the farm pay for pre-harvest expenses such as seed, fertilizer and labor. Your share contribution ensures a productive and cost-effective farming season.
