West Seattle holidays: Pathfinder wreaths @ Farmers’ Market

Yet another West Seattle holiday tradition – handmade wreaths from Pathfinder K-8. Their booth made its WS Farmers’ Market debut today, with Yumi and Willow displaying two of this year’s creations. You can find them under a canopy by the KeyBank west-side doors (right next to the Kiwanis Club of West Seattle, selling tickets for next Saturday’s pancake breakfast – more on that later).

P.S. Yes, they’ll be selling wreaths every Sunday between now and Christmas (12/4, 12/11, 12/18) – as long as supplies last! As the school website points out, the wreath sales have been going on for almost 20 years.

    All proceeds from the sale of these wreaths support Pathfinder K-8’s outdoor education program. The money is used for camping trips and more…Thanks to all who have purchased and thanks to Willow and Yumi for braving the rainy day to help support Pathfinder K-8. To find out more about Pathfinder K-8 please visit their website.

    Will they be back next weekend?

      Yes! Sorry, one of those things that, now that we’ve covered it for a few years, we assume too much shared background knowledge. I just checked the Pathfinder website and they definitely have folks scheduled to be there for the next three Sundays (12/4, 11, 18) – which also are Hometown Holidays Sundays in The Junction with tons more fun (and the tree lighting next Saturday) … will add to the story.

    Also, these wreaths are all handmade using greens donated by the community. These wreaths are not purchased from a manufacturer and re-sold by the school!

    That means the costs are minimal, so nearly 100% of the money goes right to supporting the school. In addition, this is a very ‘green’ operation, since all greens can be composted and the metal wire recycled.

Sorry, comment time is over.
