    13. Seattle Tilth info session for Master Composter training @ Chaco Canyon Organic Café
      6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

      Did you know that Seattle now prohibits food waste from going in the garbage? Food waste in landfills is a big problem, accounting for nearly one quarter of methane emissions in the US. Alternatively, when it’s kept out of the garbage and composted, food waste is an incredibly useful soil amendment, turning garbage into “gardener’s gold.” The benefits of compost are huge – reducing global warming, storm water pollution and waste, while building healthy soil and growing healthy plants.

      Now in its 30th year, Seattle Tilth offers the Master Composter / Soil Builder program in partnership with Seattle Public Utilities to train community members to become compost educators. Community members participate in 28 hours of classroom learning, hands-on practice and field trips. Learn how to compost while learning about soil science, natural yard care and recycling!

      Training includes eight sessions during four weeks starting on Tuesday, March 24 in Seattle’s Wallingford neighborhood (4649 Sunnyside Ave N). After the training, Master Composters contribute 35 hours of volunteer outreach teaching practical techniques to other community members. Volunteers work on projects of their own choosing – at schools, churches, community centers, businesses and community gardens.

      Apply by March 14
      The Master Composter program is for Seattle residents only. APPLY NOW. Applications are due March 14. Bilingual applicants are encouraged to apply.

      King County residents who live outside of Seattle are encouraged to apply to similar programs we offer in King County.

      Questions? Come to an Info Session!
      Interested and want to learn more about this program? Attend one of the following info sessions:

      Wednesday, March 4, 6-7 p.m. at Chaco Canyon in West Seattle (3770 SW Alaska St)
      Thursday, Mar. 5, 6-7 p.m. at Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlands (5513 South Cloverdale Street)
      *****

      The Master Composter/Soil Builder program is managed by Seattle Tilth and sponsored by Seattle Public Utilities.

      Questions on urban gardening, permaculture techniques, or your own problem plants are our specialty and are more than welcome! We hope to see you there! The Community Orchard of West Seattle is located at the east end of the parking lot adjacent to the Horticulture Center, north end of the campus at South Seattle Community College.

      What is Community Orchard of West Seattle?

      Community Orchard of West Seattle (COWS) provides a home-scale model that demonstrates how much food can be grown on a city-sized lot. Our produce goes to our volunteers, neighbors and local food security programs while we provide a venue for public agricultural education and community gathering. Using permaculture and organic growing principles, COWS demonstrates several different kinds of non-standard orchard techniques and garden configurations – most of which are based on no-till, polyculture, low-maintenance sustainable food production strategies.

      By David Henry Hwang

      March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Seattle Premiere

      This laugh-out-loud comedy by the much celebrated Tony-Award winning playwright David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), merrily spews forth mutilated and mangled idioms, slang and pronunciations, against the backdrop of stranger-in-a-strange-land tensions. Our protagonist, a naïve American business man, finds himself in China trying to sell a Cultural Minister signs with proper English translations, all the while making his own blunders not only in language, but in cultural etiquette, sex, and in searching for the best guanxi!

      By David Henry Hwang

      March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Seattle Premiere

      This laugh-out-loud comedy by the much celebrated Tony-Award winning playwright David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), merrily spews forth mutilated and mangled idioms, slang and pronunciations, against the backdrop of stranger-in-a-strange-land tensions. Our protagonist, a naïve American business man, finds himself in China trying to sell a Cultural Minister signs with proper English translations, all the while making his own blunders not only in language, but in cultural etiquette, sex, and in searching for the best guanxi!

      Chinglish
      By David Henry Hwang

      March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Seattle Premiere

      This laugh-out-loud comedy by the much celebrated Tony-Award winning playwright David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), merrily spews forth mutilated and mangled idioms, slang and pronunciations, against the backdrop of stranger-in-a-strange-land tensions. Our protagonist, a naïve American business man, finds himself in China trying to sell a Cultural Minister signs with proper English translations, all the while making his own blunders not only in language, but in cultural etiquette, sex, and in searching for the best guanxi!

      *mature themes

      Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

We do it all wrong with flattering sound systems, songs that you actually want to sing but can’t find anywhere, and magical song slips that self destruct if “grease megamix” is written on them.”

      Chinglish
      By David Henry Hwang

      March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Seattle Premiere

      This laugh-out-loud comedy by the much celebrated Tony-Award winning playwright David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), merrily spews forth mutilated and mangled idioms, slang and pronunciations, against the backdrop of stranger-in-a-strange-land tensions. Our protagonist, a naïve American business man, finds himself in China trying to sell a Cultural Minister signs with proper English translations, all the while making his own blunders not only in language, but in cultural etiquette, sex, and in searching for the best guanxi!

      *mature themes

      Performances: March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

      Tickets are available online at artswest.org or at the Box Office: 206-938-0339. Learn more about the show here.

      What is Community Orchard of West Seattle?

      Community Orchard of West Seattle (COWS) provides a home-scale model that demonstrates how much food can be grown on a city-sized lot. Our produce goes to our volunteers, neighbors and local food security programs while we provide a venue for public agricultural education and community gathering. Using permaculture and organic growing principles, COWS demonstrates several different kinds of non-standard orchard techniques and garden configurations – most of which are based on no-till, polyculture, low-maintenance sustainable food production strategies.

      Chinglish
      By David Henry Hwang

      March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Seattle Premiere

      This laugh-out-loud comedy by the much celebrated Tony-Award winning playwright David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), merrily spews forth mutilated and mangled idioms, slang and pronunciations, against the backdrop of stranger-in-a-strange-land tensions. Our protagonist, a naïve American business man, finds himself in China trying to sell a Cultural Minister signs with proper English translations, all the while making his own blunders not only in language, but in cultural etiquette, sex, and in searching for the best guanxi!

    12. InspireSeattle Social: ‘Consequences of Energy’
      6:30 pm – 9:30 pm

      InspireSeattle Invites YOU to join us at our Social Forum: Saturday, March 14th at 6:30 pm. Remember “IT’S A POTLUCK!!” – so please help out and bring something to eat and to drink!

      Main discussion topic for this evening: Unintended Consequences of Energy Production and Usage

      Clearly energy drives our economy, communities and culture. Energy is core to our way of life today and in the future. We all understand that energy comes at a cost, both to our wallets and to our environment. The politics and power around energy production and usage are arguably the most perverse of any issue, both in the US and throughout the world. As with many things, often there exist unintended consequences with both energy production and usage. Also often these consequences are not well known, or even purposely kept from public view.

      This evening’s panel will discuss multiple unintended consequences of energy production and usage. Topics will include hydraulic fracturing (or “fracking”), the recent “game-changer” in US energy production that has dramatically increased US oil and gas production and has been a key in our recent oil and gasoline price declines. A carbon-free energy source, nuclear energy, will be discussed. Of course climate change will be part of this discussion, but also key planetary boundaries needed for safe operations of life on our planet.

      Please join us for this important discussion!

      Chinglish
      By David Henry Hwang

      March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Seattle Premiere

      This laugh-out-loud comedy by the much celebrated Tony-Award winning playwright David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), merrily spews forth mutilated and mangled idioms, slang and pronunciations, against the backdrop of stranger-in-a-strange-land tensions. Our protagonist, a naïve American business man, finds himself in China trying to sell a Cultural Minister signs with proper English translations, all the while making his own blunders not only in language, but in cultural etiquette, sex, and in searching for the best guanxi!

We do it all wrong with flattering sound systems, songs that you actually want to sing but can’t find anywhere, and magical song slips that self destruct if “grease megamix” is written on them.”

      Chinglish
      By David Henry Hwang

      March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Seattle Premiere

      This laugh-out-loud comedy by the much celebrated Tony-Award winning playwright David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), merrily spews forth mutilated and mangled idioms, slang and pronunciations, against the backdrop of stranger-in-a-strange-land tensions. Our protagonist, a naïve American business man, finds himself in China trying to sell a Cultural Minister signs with proper English translations, all the while making his own blunders not only in language, but in cultural etiquette, sex, and in searching for the best guanxi!

      *mature themes

      Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

      5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

      Join your neighbors and colleagues and fellow urban farmers every Thursday, 5–7 pm, starting March 13, at the Community Orchard of West Seattle.

      Help plant, tend, weed and harvest green leafy crops, berries, fruiting trees and other plants during this growing season at our huge urban garden and orchard! It’s time to prune trees and berry bushes, and develop ideal individual soil preparations for each crop to be planted.

      Questions on urban gardening, permaculture techniques, or your own problem plants are our specialty and are more than welcome! We hope to see you there! The Community Orchard of West Seattle is located at the east end of the parking lot adjacent to the Horticulture Center, north end of the campus at South Seattle Community College.

      What is Community Orchard of West Seattle?

      Community Orchard of West Seattle (COWS) provides a home-scale model that demonstrates how much food can be grown on a city-sized lot. Our produce goes to our volunteers, neighbors and local food security programs while we provide a venue for public agricultural education and community gathering. Using permaculture and organic growing principles, COWS demonstrates several different kinds of non-standard orchard techniques and garden configurations – most of which are based on no-till, polyculture, low-maintenance sustainable food production strategies.

      By David Henry Hwang

      March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Seattle Premiere

      This laugh-out-loud comedy by the much celebrated Tony-Award winning playwright David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), merrily spews forth mutilated and mangled idioms, slang and pronunciations, against the backdrop of stranger-in-a-strange-land tensions. Our protagonist, a naïve American business man, finds himself in China trying to sell a Cultural Minister signs with proper English translations, all the while making his own blunders not only in language, but in cultural etiquette, sex, and in searching for the best guanxi!

      By David Henry Hwang

      March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Seattle Premiere

      This laugh-out-loud comedy by the much celebrated Tony-Award winning playwright David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), merrily spews forth mutilated and mangled idioms, slang and pronunciations, against the backdrop of stranger-in-a-strange-land tensions. Our protagonist, a naïve American business man, finds himself in China trying to sell a Cultural Minister signs with proper English translations, all the while making his own blunders not only in language, but in cultural etiquette, sex, and in searching for the best guanxi!

We do it all wrong with flattering sound systems, songs that you actually want to sing but can’t find anywhere, and magical song slips that self destruct if “grease megamix” is written on them.”

      By David Henry Hwang

      March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Seattle Premiere

      This laugh-out-loud comedy by the much celebrated Tony-Award winning playwright David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), merrily spews forth mutilated and mangled idioms, slang and pronunciations, against the backdrop of stranger-in-a-strange-land tensions. Our protagonist, a naïve American business man, finds himself in China trying to sell a Cultural Minister signs with proper English translations, all the while making his own blunders not only in language, but in cultural etiquette, sex, and in searching for the best guanxi!

      *mature themes

      Performances: March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

    7. Community Orchard of West Seattle Work Party @ South Seattle College
      5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

      Join your neighbors and colleagues and fellow urban farmers every Thursday, 5–7 pm, starting March 13, at the Community Orchard of West Seattle.

      Help plant, tend, weed and harvest green leafy crops, berries, fruiting trees and other plants during this growing season at our huge urban garden and orchard! It’s time to prune trees and berry bushes, and develop ideal individual soil preparations for each crop to be planted.

      Questions on urban gardening, permaculture techniques, or your own problem plants are our specialty and are more than welcome! We hope to see you there! The Community Orchard of West Seattle is located at the east end of the parking lot adjacent to the Horticulture Center, north end of the campus at South Seattle Community College.

      What is Community Orchard of West Seattle?

      Community Orchard of West Seattle (COWS) provides a home-scale model that demonstrates how much food can be grown on a city-sized lot. Our produce goes to our volunteers, neighbors and local food security programs while we provide a venue for public agricultural education and community gathering. Using permaculture and organic growing principles, COWS demonstrates several different kinds of non-standard orchard techniques and garden configurations – most of which are based on no-till, polyculture, low-maintenance sustainable food production strategies.

      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery (WSB sponsor):

      Chinglish
      By David Henry Hwang

      March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Seattle Premiere

      This laugh-out-loud comedy by the much celebrated Tony-Award winning playwright David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), merrily spews forth mutilated and mangled idioms, slang and pronunciations, against the backdrop of stranger-in-a-strange-land tensions. Our protagonist, a naïve American business man, finds himself in China trying to sell a Cultural Minister signs with proper English translations, all the while making his own blunders not only in language, but in cultural etiquette, sex, and in searching for the best guanxi!

      *mature themes

      Performances: March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

      Tickets are available online at artswest.org or at the Box Office: 206-938-0339. Learn more about the show here.
