Locally grown: New CSA pickup; West Seattle Garden Tour news

PICK UP PRODUCE AT SOUTH SEATTLE COMMUNITY COLLEGE: Candace Oehler from SSCC (WSB sponsor) sends word that the school’s been chosen as the latest CSA Neighborhood Pickup Site for West Seattle. CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, and in this case a system in which you sign up with local growers to buy shares of what they grow. SSCC has signed up with Local Choice Food Box, which has its main farm in Redmond. While the program is at its heart for SSCC staff and students, we’re told it’s open to EVERYONE in West Seattle who wants to take part. You can sign up here. And if you sign up by March 1 – next Monday – put “early signup” in the coupon-code box at checkout, and there’s a 5% discount. Questions? erik@growingwashington.org

WEST SEATTLE GARDEN TOUR UPDATES: The South Seattle Community College Arboretum is among the WSGT’s beneficiaries this year. Also on the list of beneficiaries, just announced, are Highland Park Elementary School, the Duwamish Longhouse Rain Garden, Seattle Tilth, and the ArtsWest Theater Education Program. And there’s still time to sign up to be a Garden Tour sponsor – find out how, here.

    Thanks for the CSA tip! Does anyone happen to know what day they will deliver to SCCC? I suppose I can contact them myself; I don’t see anything on their website.
    On a related note – does anyone know of a list of CSA’s that have pick-up points in WS, especially on weekdays rather than weekends?

    I am glad to see Highland Park Elementary on the list of WS Garden Tour Beneficiaries. I wonder what they are planning??

Sorry, comment time is over.
