The Seattle Tilth is such a cool organization. They have been providing hands-on education in organic agriculture for 37 years. They believe that all people deserve access to healthy, nutritious food and that changing the way in which we grow, cook and eat food has the potential to transform people’s lives as well as the communities in which we live. Check out what classes and events they have coming up:
Compost, Forage & Pickle: Embrace Fall with a Seattle Tilth Class
Fall is a good time to protect your garden for winter. It’s also a great time to gather leaves and materials to create your own compost. Seattle Tilth educators will show you how to take advantage of the season in your garden. Or join us to learn how to make pickles or forage for edible weeds! Parents and teachers, join us for children’s garden education.
Most classes are offered at either the Good Shepherd Center (GSC), 4649 Sunnyside Ave N, or Bradner Gardens Park (BGP), 1730 Bradner Pl S.
