SEATTLE TILTH'S THIRD THURSDAY: SOLSTICE CELEBRATION AND URBAN HOMESTEAD TOUR

Tour a garden in the Broadview neighborhood created by a Tilth member and volunteer. See four kinds of fruit trees, veggies grown in beds and containers, chickens, garden art and more. After touring the garden, we’ll sit outdoors at the fire pit to enjoy poetry and libations. Bring a blanket to sit on and your favorite poem to share as the sun sets on the longest day. Space is limited to 30 people who must reserve a spot by calling Karen Luetjen at 206-632-1999. We will provide the address and directions the week of the event.

Third Thursdays are free monthly programs organized by the Seattle Tilth board Volunteer Committee, which is dedicated to providing educational and social opportunities for volunteers, members and their guests.

When: Jun 21, 2007 from 07:00 pm to 09:00 pm

Cost: Free

If you are interested in getting involved, but are unavailable this Wednesday, please contact either White Bear or myself- we look forward to hearing from you!

Warmest Regards,

The Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center is a self-sufficient gathering place for community development, educational activities and spiritual understanding, which is open to all members of the human family. It is a living, outdoor classroom where children, youth and families come to discover ecological knowledge and wisdom from indigenous cultural perspectives. The twenty-acre site is a model of sustainable land management practices, and is planted with more than 135 species of culturally significant indigenous plants used by first peoples for food, medicine, fiber, tools, and technology.


Volunteer for the 2nd Annual Community Fruit Tree Harvest!

Rather than letting backyard fruit fall and rot on the ground, residents in Wallingford, Fremont, Phinney, and the University District neighborhoods can donate their surplus fruit to those who need it most - to our local food banks and meal programs.

For its second year, the Community Fruit Tree Harvest, a partnership between Lettuce Link of the Fremont Public Association and Seattle Tilth, will organize volunteers to glean healthy fruit from neighborhood trees and deliver it to local meal programs.

Meet new people, eat fruit, learn about fruit trees, and fight hunger! Come join our efforts to connect nutritious, organically grown produce to low-income individuals and families in Seattle neighborhoods.

How can you get involved and fight hunger?

Volunteer to pick fruit! To sign up, call Lettuce Link at 206.694.6754. Volunteer commitments are 2 hour shifts, August to October, Tuesday evenings and/or Saturday mornings. Visit our website at: http://www.fremontpublic.org/client/food.html#LettuceLink.

Donate fruit from your fruit trees! To register, call the Natural Lawn & Garden Hotline at 206-633-0224 or email info@lawnandgardenhotline.org Tree owners will be asked a series of questions, followed by a possible visit to determine if the fruit is healthy enough for donation and accessible. If it is, volunteers will come out to do the leg -- and ladder -- work.

Gardening Clinics

Volunteer Naturalist Training for Children's Garden Tours

Volunteer with groups of children as they engage all their senses through exploration and hands on activities in the Seattle Tilth Children's Garden. We taste herbs and flowers, touch the soft and the prickly, forage in the soil to discover compost critters and allow children to find the unexpected delights of gardening. All tours begin with an introductory activity and two or three other garden "stations." Children learn and practice important garden activities such as making compost, planting, tending and harvesting crops, collecting seeds and other seasonal activities. Volunteer training is free and on-going. Training sessions take place at the Good Shepherd Center in Wallingford. Tours will run Tuesday-Friday at 10 am and 1 pm. March 14 through June 9, 2006. For more information, contact Lisa Taylor at 206-633-0451 extension #2 or www.seattletilth.org.
