March 5th - Spring Organizing Meeting & Work Party

It's our 7th annual Spring Brunch Organizing Meeting & Work Party!

When:  10 am March 5th, (it's always the first Saturday of every March) 
Where:  4212 Baker Ave NW (just two doors up from the P-Patch)
What:  Coffee/tea provided, please bring whatever you'd like to share, dress appropriately for the weather. 

We'll gather promptly at 10 a.m. for organizing meeting (usually takes an hour or so), then our work party (usually about another hour or so, wrapping up no later than 12:30). 

Our community work party follows at the garden rain or shine, so plan to dress for the weather & tasks at hand. Folks also often stay on after the work party to help each other get individual plots ready for Spring & informal socializing over yummy leftovers. 

Proposed agenda items & activities include:
* Welcoming any new co-gardeners & supporters
* Reviewing P-Patch guidelines & other great info from P-Patch program
* Update on native plant slope retaining fence/wall
* Lower plaza bench discussion & decision-making
* Info on our honeybee hive
* Annual planning, site leadership & committees
* Sign-ups & prep for spring work party activities:
Sharing our gardening ideas & seed swap, bring your extra seeds!
* Preparing our community garden for Spring!

All Hazel Heights supporters and guests are invited and welcome, not just individual plot gardeners. At least one representative from each plot needs to attend, but the more the merrier so please help spread the word!

See you at the P-Patch!  

Coming Soon: Seattle Tilth’s March Edible Plant Sale

It’s the first edible plant sale of the year!  

When:  March 12, 2016 from 9am-3pm 
Where:  Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlands, 5513 S. Cloverdale St., Seattle


This plant sale is a little different from the plant sale that typically happens late April/early May as it specializes in early spring starts perfect for planting in cool and wet weather.There will be lots of organic, sustainably and locally grown vegetables such as peas, lettuce, kale, rhubarb, artichokes, asparagus, Romanesco and strawberries. You’ll even find edible flowers and culinary herbs.  

In addition, classes will be offered on such topics as Asian Greens, Perenials and Protecting Early Crops with Cloches.  

Admission is free.
