The EPA seems to think it's okay to poison us up to a certain level and so the Public Works Dept says they are following guidelines but as we know it is not okay - especially when we…See More

Hi Kevin!  If you attended the Whatcom Skillshare Faire, and have donated, I wanted to thank you!  We worked hard to bring that faire to our community.

We may have met at one of the roving garden parties, as I'm part of that Sustainable Bellingham volunteer group too.

Our annual Community Seed Swap is coming up soon.  Let me know if you'd like information on that.  I've been part of the creating team for the last 6 years.

Hope you're enjoying that scythe.  Many of us transition gardeners are connected to the TW Earth Gardens network at:
