Riz's involvement with the University of Washington (UW) Farm started in 2014 when former farm manager, Sarah Guerkink, approached him about growing flowers for the farm. He enthusiastically stepped up and spearheaded the program which is now approaching it's 7th growing season!

With the support of former interim manager Alice Vanderhaak (now of Lowland Farms in Snohomish, WA) and now full-time manager Perry Acworth, they are slowly building the program to be an educational outlet to teach students and the community about sustainable cut flower growing and processing crops to reach various markets during the growing season.
