      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.

      West Seattle Meaningful Movies presents:
      The Economics of Happiness

      The Economics of Happiness describes a world moving simultaneously in two opposing directions. On the one hand, government and big business continue to promote globalization and the consolidation of corporate power. At the same time, people around the world are resisting those policies. Far from the old institutions of power, they’re starting to forge a different future. Communities are coming together to build more human-scale, ecological economies based on a new paradigm: an economics of localization.

      Saturday, August 2, at 7:00 pm
      at High Point Neighborhood House
      (Bus numbers 21 and 128)
      (come at 6:30, for refreshments and to meet your neighbors)

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.”

    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.

      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.

This program designed for ages 3 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

      Join trained volunteer Beach Naturalists at Lincoln Park and South Alki/Constellation Park on the following dates this year for a free guided exploration at very low tide (please note the specific times for each day.) No reservations necessary; just look for signs at the beaches listed on the dates and hours below. Please note: low tide usually falls in the middle of the hours listed.:

      August 9, 9:30 am-12:30 pm
      August 10, 10:30 am-1:30 pm
      August 11, 10:30 am-1:30 pm

      Not only will you witness the Puget Sound’s multitude of marine plants and animals, but you’ll also see advocates for these living wonders sharing their knowledge with beach goers – Beach Naturalists.

      Beach Naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered to help people learn and enjoy area beaches this summer. Be sure to visit a local beach this summer and meet the Beach Naturalists. They know their beaches. They can help you enjoy the beach without harming it. They can tell you what sea stars eat, why barnacles stand on their heads and how moon snails lay their eggs. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our Beach Naturalists transfers directly to the public-it’s a wonderful infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, Community Outreach at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”

      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.

      From the Highland Park Action Committee:

      While we are not meeting over the summer during our regular meeting time, we are calling a special meeting in response to requests heard at our last meeting. Please join us at the Highland Park Improvement Club on 12th and Holden on Tuesday, August 12th at 7 pm to discuss Highland Park Elementary. We sent the following invitation to school and city officials:

      + +
      Dear Principal Cronas, your colleagues at Seattle Public School, City Council Members Burgess and Bagshaw, and Mayor Murray,

      We are the Co-Chairs of the Highland Park Action Committee, a community group that advocates for the Highland Park and Riverview Neighborhoods in Southwest Seattle. Our role is to affect positive change in our neighborhood, and we have historically been active in bringing together a voice for our neighborhood, which has faced many challenges.

      We hosted parent Peter Weiss at our May community meeting, who came to speak with us as a member of the Highland Park Elementary’s PTA. In discussing his ideas with us to organize a 5K as a fundraiser for the school, the community learned about the state of affairs for our local school- Highland Park Elementary is ranked last in the Seattle Public School System.

      Some of our members were brought to tears with this news, exhausted by what feels like yet another blind eye turned towards our community from our leaders. We write to you in response to a request that night from the community to get some answers as to why our school is doing so badly and what the plan is for improvement. We have since discussed this idea with the PTA and have formed a partnership in our efforts. We, along with incoming PTA president Sol Mendez, would like to invite you to a meeting to discuss the school, and answer some questions from our community.

      Please let us know if you can join us at the Highland Park Improvement Club on 12th and Holden on Tuesday, August 12th at 7 pm.

      Sincerely,
      Carolyn and Billy Stauffer (Co-Chairs, Highland Park Action Committee)
      Sol Mendez (President, Highland Park Elementary PTA)

      Invitation Sent To:
      Chris Cronas – Principal, Highland Park Elementary
      Marty McLaren – School Board member
      Israel Vela – Executive Director of Schools for West Seattle
      Michael Tolley – Assistant Supt for Teaching and Learning

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.

      Join EarthCorps and the Port of Seattle as we restore this site along the Duwamish River. Terminal 105 restoration construction was completed in 1995; prior to that, the narrow property was used as driveway and parking lot. Now it is a Port of Seattle public access site with picnic tables, a hand boat launch, and a small natural area. Environmental stewardship activities began in 2000. EarthCorps is working with the Port of Seattle to remove additional invasive weeds along the main river channel and replace them with native plants.

      EarthCorps supplies gloves, tools, water, light refreshments and volunteer education that covers safety, information on the park you are working in, forest health, environmental restoration and the overview of the project. No prior experience is necessary, just come ready to learn something new!

    5. 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.

      “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.

      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.
