Hi Irene;

 Yes I'm sorry that my website is down at the moment, If you wish you can view 4 project albums that I have on Facebook: Here is a link to the first 'projects' album:

http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=30651&id=680091123&l=6469f1365f

I am guessing that you can view all 4 by my sending you this link to just this one.

 Please give me an idea of what kind of work you might like for me to do for you.

 Email : sandman49686@yahoo.com  and my cell is 360-319-0424

 And thank you for considering having me do work for you!

- Scott

Hi Irene, Good to hear you are planning basket weaving classes!  Looks like the first one is soon!  If its useful for you, I can help give you a few tips on getting word out. (Just give me a call).   Sometimes the news Events posted here can take few hours before an admin person approves them. When Events are approved, they are not sent out to everyone, so its still worth promoting by other avenues.  Is there a phone number for folks to RSVP?

Seed-swap is on Sunday.  I'll send you invite to Earth Garden network also.

Basket Willow Harvesting Workshop
Saturday, January 29, 1 - 3 p.m. (tomorrow!)
Address is 5010 Elder Rd. Ferndale 98248
Directions: From I-5, Go west on Slater Rd to Elder Rd. Turn North (right) about 5 houses on the Right. If you get to Waltine you have gone too far.

"This workshop is the first in an ongoing series on harvesting materials for basket weaving. Basket willow is especially cultivated for its variety of colors and flexibility. We will harvest willow planted by Joan Nielsen, a local weaver who needs her stand cut to ensure continued production. Help us keep this precious local resource in good health and maximum production at the same time you learn how to recognize usable willow, whether wild or cultivated, and how to harvest, sort and store it. A later workshop will deal with how to prepare and use the willow after drying and seasoning is complete. This workshop is free and those who wish may take cuttings for planting. Please bring work gloves, one-handed snippers, and weather appropriate clothing. Van Pool will be arranged for those who request it in their RSVP."
