Mission and Purpose

The SVPA is a community-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to the preservation of our regional treasure, the Snoqualmie Valley. We are committed to protecting the viability of farms, residents and rural businesses in the Snoqualmie Valley. Since forming in 2010, the Snoqualmie Valley Preservation Alliance has become a very effective force for forging productive relationships between community members, farmers, residents, and county and state officials. We have advocated for creative solutions to shared challenges, and made significant headway on some key issues central to protecting the Valley, especially in the area of flooding, development impacts, and water rights.

 The stakeholders and friends of the Snoqualmie Valley have found that together, we can make our voice heard in a way that will not only serve to protect what makes the valley special, it will ultimately make this Valley even more of a regional treasure for all of us to enjoy, prosper from and celebrate.

The 2017 Taste of the Valley Farm Dinner and Benefit Auction is July 29, 2017 at Goose and Gander Farm in Carnation.

This years event will feature 15 different chefs and restaurants serving up “Tastes” made from products grown and raised right here in the Snoqualmie Valley, and a half dozen local breweries and wineries. Your admission includes dinner, two drink tickets, auction, music and dancing!
