      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.

    12. Fixers Collective & ‘Ask an Expert’ @ Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
      6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

      Combining the best of both worlds, Ask an Expert & DIY Skill Share will now be joining the West Seattle Fixers Collective on the 3rd Thursday of every month!

      Thursday, April 18th, 6:00-9:00 pm at the Youngstown Cultural Arts Center.

      In the broadest sense, a Fixers’ Collective is a group of folks who love to fix and mend things, which could be any old thing from broken blenders to ripped sweaters to antique dentist drills. Take it apart, put it back together, figure out how it works, refuse to throw it away, and get to know others who do the same! What the collective works on depends entirely on who shows up but you can be rest assured that there will be plenty of creativity involved. Adding to this fun, The Tool Library also brings together some experienced DIY coaches who are willing to answer any questions that you may have on your current projects, future plans, or anything else you liked to discuss. Our coaches have expertise in a variety of areas, including solar power, water harvesting, green architecture & building, permaculture, and urban gardening.

      These open and informal community meetups offer an opportunity to bounce project ideas off fellow DIYers and maybe receive some advice in the process, if you like. It’s also a great time to show off what you’ve been working on.From small little blenders to entire home renovations, these meetups offer you a chance to explore all of sorts of DIY fixes!

      Ask an Expert brings together our community and hosts some experienced DIY (do-it-yourself) coaches who are willing to answer any questions that you may have on your current projects, future plans, or anything else you like to discuss.

      Each month the Tool Library brings together our community’s experts to provide advice on your home and garden ideas. From light-hearted transformations (like early blooming flowers) to heavy-hitting ones like rainwater catchment, building an addition, or becoming an urban farmer and everything in-between, our experts will give you the power to understand and tackle your challenge.

      Bring your inspiration, inquiring minds, and projects. They’ll bring the experts and the pizza!

      p.s. Tell your friends! You do not have to be a West Seattle resident to participate in this event or borrow tools from the West Seattle Tool Library!

      9:00 am – 9:00 am

      Welcome: If you have a heartbeat or can draw a breath, you are welcome to come and join us. No experience or prior knowledge needed.

      My name is Caylen Storm, I have been teaching Tai Chi locally for a few years and I would like to invite you and yours to join me for an informal hour of Tai Chi on every Saturday of the month, Spring Through Fall. The class is FREE so all you need to bring is a smile and the right clothes for the weather.

      The class, as always, is open to anyone curious about the marvelous art of Tai Chi. All we ask is that you dress for the weather and bring friends. The main focus of the class is in teaching people what they can do to improve the basic quality of daily life, i.e. smoother, deeper breathing, a more stable sense of balance, how to let stress pass by us rather than trapping it in our bodies, etc. We will be out in the fresh air, having a grand time and maybe even learning something before we’re done.

      When: We begin class at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday April 5th, 2014 and continue until September 27th, 2014.

      Where: We meet just West of the Statue of Liberty, but will move the class up or down the beach to accommodate the many festivals that occur during Summer.

      The event is also a spotlight for the local foster programs. Some of the youth that are a part of Unified Outreach summer work training program are from foster homes so the event hits close to home. We are collecting school supplies; folders, binders, pens, pencils and back packs to give back to foster home students. There will drop off bins for school supplies as people come into the event. Come out and enjoy the music, support the youth in the program and give back to your local foster homes.

      The C.I.A. Music Group, AKA (Creative, Intelligent Ambitious) is built up of a group of youth from the community that are a part of Unified Outreach’s summer arts program. The group came together through a summer work training program that provided the opportunity and work experience in, event planning and event management skills. The entire event, press release, flier and poster were created by the youth in the program.

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.”

      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.

The main focus of the class is in teaching people what they can do to improve the basic quality of daily life, i.e. smoother, deeper breathing, a more stable sense of balance, how to let stress pass by us rather than trapping it in our bodies, etc. We will be out in the fresh air, having a grand time and maybe even learning something before we’re done.

      When: We begin class at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday April 5th, 2014 and continue until September 27th, 2014.

      Where: We meet just West of the Statue of Liberty, but will move the class up or down the beach to accommodate the many festivals that occur during Summer.

      “I know, I know, karaoke is supposed to kinda suck. It is traditionally composed of bad sound, limited song choices, and frat boy margaritaville sing-alongs. 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.”

      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.

      9:00 am – 9:00 am

      Welcome: If you have a heartbeat or can draw a breath, you are welcome to come and join us. No experience or prior knowledge needed.

      My name is Caylen Storm, I have been teaching Tai Chi locally for a few years and I would like to invite you and yours to join me for an informal hour of Tai Chi on every Saturday of the month, Spring Through Fall. The class is FREE so all you need to bring is a smile and the right clothes for the weather.

      The class, as always, is open to anyone curious about the marvelous art of Tai Chi. All we ask is that you dress for the weather and bring friends. The main focus of the class is in teaching people what they can do to improve the basic quality of daily life, i.e. smoother, deeper breathing, a more stable sense of balance, how to let stress pass by us rather than trapping it in our bodies, etc. We will be out in the fresh air, having a grand time and maybe even learning something before we’re done.

      When: We begin class at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday April 5th, 2014 and continue until September 27th, 2014.

      Where: We meet just West of the Statue of Liberty, but will move the class up or down the beach to accommodate the many festivals that occur during Summer.

      The San Gennaro Foundation is a non-profit organization created in 2013 to honor St. Gennaro, the Patron Saint of Naples, and his commitment to help people in need. The Foundation’s goal is to raise money through events such as the San Gennaro Festival to help support local community efforts.

    8. Cooking with Class 2014 @ Salty's on Alki
      6:00 pm – 9:30 pm

      From Salty’s on Alki (WSB sponsor):

      You’ve tossed down a few raw oysters from Taylor Shellfish and paired them with a great oyster wine — maybe the Firesteed Pinot Gris or Alexandria Nicole’s Albariño — out on Salty’s private-dining deck with a view of Seattle’s skyline across Elliott Bay. Now you’re ready to meet your chefs and get to work! This is Cooking with Class 2014, Tuesday, September 9, 6:00 to 9:30 pm. at Salty’s on Alki Beach in West Seattle.

      Participants choose three chefs and interact with them, actually making the dishes and learning their techniques.

      * 22 top Northwest chefs provide hands-on training to small groups of 8.
      * Each chef trains three groups of people for 30 minutes each.
      * Wineries pair their wines with the chefs’ food.
      * Live auction and door prizes with your hosts John Curley and Chef Jeremy McLachlan of Salty’s Seafood Grills.

      You might learn how to create a broth of spicy tomato and white wine to accent local clams (Canyon River Ranch), pair mango and prawns (Far-Eats), sear scallops in black pepper and vanilla brine (Andaluca) or soft poach an egg for your lobster bisque (Seastar Seattle). You get to choose — there are 22 local, amazing chefs who want to share their cooking tips and ideas on food. Throughout the evening, you work with three chefs in separate, small groups, putting the dish together, eating what you create and pairing it with wine donated/paired by wineries. That lobster bisque should go nicely with the 2012 Chateau Ste. Michelle Cold Creek Chardonnay; spot prawns with fresh corn polenta (Salish Lodge & Spa) will be a delight with Sparkman’s 2012 Apparition blend of Roussane, Grenache Blanc and Marsanne. Purple’s Spanish-style mussels will be set off perfectly with Dusted Valley’s 2012 Cabernet Franc.

      Date: Tuesday, September 9th
      Time: 6:00 to 9:30 pm
      Cost: $150 per person (must be 21 or older)
      Location: Salty’s on Alki Duwamish Room (Private Dining Downstairs)

      You’ll need to head to the website at seattledining.com/cwc to look over the chefs and their dishes, the wine pairings and see what you’d like to learn this year. Included you will find Salty’s on Alki Executive Chef Paolo Carey-DiGregorio, Alki Pastry Chef Jena Sorbera and Redondo Executive Chef Gabriel Cabrera. Sign up online, pay through PayPal, and you’ll be ready to go. We’ll send you a confirmation and you’ll see the auction book in advance to plan your strategy. It’s an evening you won’t want to miss.

      The cost of your entry tickets, raffle tickets and auction purchases helps others: the residents and participants of Providence ElderPlace and Providence Heritage House at the Market. These programs care for frail, low-income seniors, and the proceeds from Cooking with Class help fill in the gaps, making lives more comfortable and enjoyable. We can all appreciate what it must feel like to outlive your savings or family members. These programs provide care, socialization and, very importantly, the right to continue making your own decisions and direct your life to the best of your ability.

      Baby Ketten Karaoke starts at 9 pm at Skylark Café & Club. Details on Baby Ketten and songlists here.

      “I know, I know, karaoke is supposed to kinda suck. It is traditionally composed of bad sound, limited song choices, and frat boy margaritaville sing-alongs. 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.”

      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.

      Leader: Ken Shaw
      Date: Thursday September 11th, 6:00 pm– 8:00 pm

      This stream corridor of rare old growth forest has been stewarded by a community of volunteers for decades. At a time when Seattle is at risk of losing 70% of its canopy in the next 20 years, groups like these are vital to reversing this trend. Steward Ken Shaw will discuss his holistic restoration approach.

      In addition to the common old growth trees, there are plenty of mature western yews (Taxus brevifolia). You can find a 2003 plant list here.

      Interesting history of the park here.

      Trail description: Irregular terrain, some brief steep trails, mostly flat loop trail.
      Elevation gain 150 feet.

      Where to meet: Admiral Way & SW Stevens at the kiosk.
      What to bring: Dress suitable for weather, it will be darker and colder under the canopy. Flashlight optional.

Visited by a mysterious young woman and forced to confront the meaning of his life, his destiny, and his own humanity, we are given a glimpse into the person behind his revered leadership. Gripping, daring, and powerful, this play melds humanness with legacy, and mortality with spirituality. Your heart will be touched and your soul stirred.

    3. Orchard St Ravine Work Party
      9:00 am – 1:00 pm

      he Orchard St Ravine work party schedule for 2014 is for the second Saturday of each month from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. Come any time between those hours.

      This is a great opportunity to meet new neighbors and catch up with friends, while maintaining your local park. The ravine looks beautiful at this time of year but needs a little TLC. There are plenty of ways to contribute. The parks department crew cleared quite a few blackberries last month, but they left behind a few roots that we need to remove. The trails need trimming and there are wood chips to spread. Or just come to say “hello”. We would love to see you!

      If you plan to come, please register beforehand at http://seattle.cedar.greencitypartnerships.org/. It’s easy to do. Just find the Orchard Street Ravine under “Filter by Park”, click on the work party, and then “Join this Event”.

    4. Tai Chi on the Beach at Alki
      9:00 am – 9:00 am

      Welcome: If you have a heartbeat or can draw a breath, you are welcome to come and join us. No experience or prior knowledge needed.

      My name is Caylen Storm, I have been teaching Tai Chi locally for a few years and I would like to invite you and yours to join me for an informal hour of Tai Chi on every Saturday of the month, Spring Through Fall. The class is FREE so all you need to bring is a smile and the right clothes for the weather.

      The class, as always, is open to anyone curious about the marvelous art of Tai Chi. All we ask is that you dress for the weather and bring friends. The main focus of the class is in teaching people what they can do to improve the basic quality of daily life, i.e. smoother, deeper breathing, a more stable sense of balance, how to let stress pass by us rather than trapping it in our bodies, etc. We will be out in the fresh air, having a grand time and maybe even learning something before we’re done.

      When: We begin class at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday April 5th, 2014 and continue until September 27th, 2014.

      Where: We meet just West of the Statue of Liberty, but will move the class up or down the beach to accommodate the many festivals that occur during Summer.

      10:00 am – 2:00 pm

      The West Duwamish Greenbelt needs you! Volunteer with Nature Consortium and help restore vital habitat in Seattle’s largest remaining forest. Volunteers are needed to help remove invasive plant species, mulch, clean up litter, and plant native trees and shrubs.

      Nature Consortium hosts volunteer restoration work parties year round. Currently we are working Tuesdays and Saturdays from 10 am-2 pm in the West Duwamish Greenbelt located in West Seattle. Come experience some fun in the forest as we engage in hands-on conservation work.

      We provide tools, gloves, and all the training you need to get started. Each work party begins with a short informal forest ecology workshop. Volunteers can expect to pitch in for a variety of restoration activities including removing invasive plants, mulching, and forest maintenance. Planting occurs October-March, and summer months also include forest monitoring.

      We blend art and nature in everything that we do. Performing artists “play in the woods” during many of our work parties, and include singers and instrumentalists. Learn more and sign up today at www.naturec.org/volunteer.

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.”

      On the re-imagined eve of his assassination, we meet Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. weary, restless, and in a lonely hotel room. Visited by a mysterious young woman and forced to confront the meaning of his life, his destiny, and his own humanity, we are given a glimpse into the person behind his revered leadership. Gripping, daring, and powerful, this play melds humanness with legacy, and mortality with spirituality. Your heart will be touched and your soul stirred.
