Thank you so much to Slow Food Seattle for their amazing volunteer support in saturday’s productive work party. We were able to finally finish digging out the center herb spiral of the garden and bring the vitamin rich compost in. This was tough work but Slow Food really came through with enthusiasm and vigor! Thank you to Tiana Colovos who has been fostering this amazing partnership with such an incredible organization. Click here to learn more about Slow Food Seattle.
We also had a work party to finish painting the native flowers that will adorn the fence around the garden. We are putting these in to beautify the fence and increase knowledge of native plants. Thanks to Michaela Miller and Lilly Hotchkiss for their organizing and support.
Finally, we hosted our first community workshop for community members around Orca. We helped people set up home wormbins. Thanks to the Department of Neighborhoods, we were able to supply all the materials. 15 families came through and left with their own wormbin and knowledge about the benefits of home composting!
