Last call to urban farmers for gardens to include in our tour on Saturday, June 18th  If you have a new or old; big or small; productive or not so productive garden and want to be part of the tour or have questions please contact me.

That's a good idea Laura Matter.  I could do 10-12 at Picardo maybe, but really have to leave by 12 for previous commitment.

Curious if you plan to include local community gardens in the tour David? Like Picardo? If so you will want to check in with site leaders as they may want to play host.

I am too but I have a class here that date, so if for some reason the date changes let me know!

I'm interested in offering my garden for the tour. It's definitely "in process," but if I wait until I'm finished with it, no one will ever get to see it!

Hi, Neighbors. A house on my block, 7325 34th Ave NE, is being torn down. I just found out the developers are starting to bring in equipment this afternoon. My former neighbor left behind a greenhouse full of pots, tools and workbenches. There are also plants for the taking--rhubarb, peonies, small shrubs, flowering bulbs--and raised beds made from 4x4s, plus clothesline structures that were used for cane berries. 

It's OK with the developer to forage things before they start demolition. Sorry for the short notice, but come on over this morning if you want anything!

Hey there Urban Farmers,
We are going to host a garden tour on Saturday, June 18th and seeking urban farmers who would like to be included. So if you have a new or old; big or small; productive or not so productive garden and want to be part of the tour please contact me. I am thinking about a time frame from 10 AM to 2 PM but would extend it into the late afternoon if there are a lot of you want to be included.

Adding another link, if the Facebook one doesn't work. Google Dutch designer Floris Schoonderbeek's "Groundfridge". Fancy!

Hi all, thought you may be interested in this food storage option! Not sure how well it works, but looks to be similar to a root cellar.
