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.

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.

      By Katori Hall

      Northwest Premiere, 2010 Oliver Award Winner

      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.

      We know we have shared ideals – social justice, civic duty, quality environmental conditions – but the journeys that bring us to this place are unique. We are lucky to have among us women who have been sharing their stories through books, art and other media.

      One of those women, Theresa McCormick, has recently self-published her book, *A Far Cry from Here*, in which she tells us how she struggled to reconcile her Fundamentalist roots and her feminist branches. Theresa will share with us some of the things she learned along the way as she wrote her story. Please join us for this stimulating program at the West Seattle Golf
      Course.

      The discussion group will take on the topic “Helping Hillary.” That’s at 10:30 am.

      Registration starts at 11:30 and lunch is at 11:45. The program will start a little after noon. Lunch is $13.50 for members and $15.00 for non-members. For those not wanting lunch, there is a room charge of $5.00, which includes coffee or tea and dessert.

      Please RSVP to me by noon on September 22 indicating whether or not you want lunch as I have to report our numbers to the Golf Course by that time. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me by email or by phone.

      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.

    2. 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.

      Did You Know?

      Located in the Delridge area of West Seattle, The West Duwamish Greenbelt is the largest remaining forest in the city of Seattle at over 500 acres. That means you don’t have to travel outside of the city to enjoy the great outdoors.

      The West Duwamish Greenbelt provides many benefits for the environment and the community. Bald eagles, hawks, foxes, salamander, and other local wildlife rely on the habitat this greenbelt provides.

      The plants in the forest help to reduce storm water runoff, filter pollutants in the water, and reduce erosion. As these plants absorb carbon dioxide and other pollutants from the air, they also improve air quality and help reduce the effects of global warming.

      And the best part? You don’t have to travel out of the city to experience the great outdoors. Urban forests like the West Duwamish Greenbelt are important community spaces that increase our city’s natural beauty and make the natural world accessible for everyone to enjoy.

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.

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.

      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.

      The Mountaintop – September 11–October 5, 2014
      By Katori Hall

      Northwest Premiere, 2010 Oliver Award Winner

      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.

    7. ‘Blind wine tasting’ fundraiser for Furry Faces Foundation @ TBD
      3:00 pm – 6:00 pm

      Save the date – October 5th from 3-6 pm! From Teri Ensley at Furry Faces Foundation:

      It’s a Blind Wine Tasting! Here’s how it works:
      Each person brings a bottle of red or white wine. Upon arrival it is wrapped in foil and assigned a number, with the ‘type of wine’ written on it, e.g., Merlot (you need to remember the number of your bottle). Reds and whites are separated onto different tables. You walk about with your (F3 provided) wine glass, mingling with really cool people, pouring your own tastes. Write your thoughts on your (F3 provided) tasting card.

      At the end of the evening, you vote for your favorite wine of the evening and turn it in. We tally the votes. There will be a gift card prize for the #1 Red and the #1 White. There will be some nibbles and noshes, however, you may want to eat a good lunch ahead of time because if say 50 people attend…that’s 50 bottles of wine to taste!

      This event is to help raise the funds for Furry Faces Foundation’s 501(c)3* $800.00 application fee. We will have a suggested donation amount at our check in table…something reasonable like $10ish. It’s only suggested; not required to attend. The donation jar will not be on the check in table–it’ll be in some other, super cool place, so there is no pressure.

      * We are a Washington State Charity/non-profit and have decided to apply for our 501 (c) 3 status.

      Northwest Premiere, 2010 Oliver Award Winner

      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.

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 – 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”.

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.
