Event Description

The Urban Farmer's group met last weekend and decided to host a series of 'Garden Opens" where we would look at a member's garden and discuss how to grow our network of urban farmers in NE Seattle.  Our next meeting will be at David Johnson's garden on Saturday October 4th from 10 AM until noon.  This is an established garden with espaliered fruit trees, drought tolerant plantings, a greenhouse, and an annual food garden that is transitioning from summer to winter production.

Discussion will include organizing a 'sodbuster' event, looking at how we can establish a closer relationship with the Nathan Hale horticulture program, discussion of garden design and maintenance issues, winter gardening, soil building, and other topics that you might want to bring up.

All members are welcome.

Looking forward to this.  I will need to leave early, however.

The potential project at Nathan Hale is really exciting, for several great reasons.  It is a wonderful greenhouse and can fit well with Sustainable NE Seattle's work with the Meadowbrook Community Garden and Edible Hedge, by propagating hard-to-find species of useful plants.

I hope we can coordinate between Urban Farmers and Permaculture Design working groups to schedule an informational meeting and design charrette that explores the potential of this valuable project.

Thank you to Randy for bringing this to our attention.

I will be out of town for this Garden Open, but keep me in mind for the Sodbusting adventure. I would love help with my soon-to-not-be-lawn.
