Key Peninsula Farm Tour

Check out the Living Machine: Learn first-hand how sustainable systems can work cooperatively with nature to produce useful end products. Camp Seymour installed Washington’s largest Living Machine in 2003. A Living Machine is a sewage treatment facility that treats effluent to a level that allows water reuse in irrigation and a fish pond. The most visible part of the treatment facility is a green- house, where plants and other living organisms-housed in six aerobic hydro- ponic tanks-treat camp’s waste water. The final processing is done in a wetland just outside the greenhouse. Essentially, the Living Machine is its own ecosystem, accelerating nature’s own water purification process!
