One Tree Hard Cider House opens in downtown Spokane Friday

Originally established in 2014, One Tree Hard Cider, is sold at bars, bottle shops and grocery stores throughout the Inland Northwest. They have had a small tasting room in Spokane Valley and will open a new 1,600 square foot location in downtown Spokane at 111 South Madison this Friday. The Valley location will be used for more production rather than tasting.

The official grand opening is on Friday at 2pm. The new cider house boasts the largest selection of Craft Cider on tap in town, as well as a wide selection of craft beers and wines. The 20 taps are dedicated to a rotation of the best craft ciders and perrys throughout the Northwest.

One Tree's menu contains an eclectic selection of appetizers, such as the house specialty 'fizzy fruit', as well as unique house-made pizzas. There will be quite a few gluten free options, including gluten free pizza, available as well. Grant Barnes and Neal Hennessy are co-owners.

Seeking landowners and producers to protect clean water and benefit working lands

Spokane Conservation District (SCD) invites agricultural and timber/forestry landowners to apply for funding to improve production on their working lands and provide environmental benefits. Landowners within the Greater Spokane River Watershed in Washington and Idaho can seek a portion of more than $15 million being invested by a bi-state partnership to improve practices on private agricultural and timber/forest land. Applications are currently being accepted until October 16, 2017.

The Greater Spokane River Watershed Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP) is a voluntary, incentive-based program that works with landowners to adopt conservation practices that enhance producer operations, improve soil health, forest health, water quality, and wildlife habitat. This is the second year of the five-year program, which provides funds for technical assistance and on-the-ground projects, including the newly developed SCD Commodity Buffer Program.

The Commodity Buffer Program is a new, innovative approach that compensates producers, based on current crop values rather than the traditional soil rental rate values, for installing stream buffers; this gives producers the opportunity to protect the environment without sacrificing their bottom line.

The partnership, led by SCD, is hosting three public meetings to share information about the program and the upcoming round of applications. All meetings will be held from 6-8pm:

Wednesday, September, 13 at DeSmet Tribal Longhouse, Brynes Rd, DeSmet, ID
Thursday, September, 14 at Green Bluff Grange, 9809 E Greenbluff Rd, Colbert, WA
Wednesday, September, 20 at the Harvester Restaurant, 410 W 1st St, Spangle, WA

To learn more or access online application materials, visit www.SCCD.org/rcpp.
