The volunteer crew from Pathfinder K-8 will be back in The Junction during Hometown Holidays Sunday this weekend, 9:30 am-2 pm by the Farmers’ Market – but they need help right now so they can make more fundraising wreaths! From Lashanna:

West Seattle – Do you have beautiful ornamental greens and flowers? Does your holly need a trim?

You see us each weekend in the Junction selling our homemade wreaths; well, we have crafted ourselves out of materials. Pathfinder K-8 is in need of all kinds of ornamentals; yellowish colors, bluish, variegated, anything with pines, or acorns or nuts; seed-heads, rose hips. Basically anything in your garden or neighborhood that still looks good, even statice from your last bouquet of fresh flowers! The clippings need to be at least 5″ long in order to be usable – so 5″ to 12″ long or bring in an entire branch!

If you have some beautiful trimmings, please call or e-mail Lashanna 206-715-5265 or lashannaw@gmail.com with

–good time to pick up or we can arrange a drop-off.

  1. The dumpster by Tony’s is filled with greens trimmed from their Xmas trees. I’m sure any lot that sells trees would be happy to let you have the trimmed branches.

  2. If you have an non native highly invasive holly tree in your yard please have it cut down the stump ground up and the debris properly disposed of. These trees spread like crazy and over take native species. Happy holidays and happy responsible wreath making
