Gardening this year? Grow your plan with HPAC this Wednesday

Ever since the West Seattle Bridge closed 11 months ago, transportation topics have dominated most neighborhood meetings. But this Wednesday, HPAC – the community council for Highland Park, Riverview, and South Delridge – has a palate cleanser: Gardening. Here’s the agenda for the online meeting at 7 pm Wednesday (February 24):

Announcements – learn about upcoming free compost giveaway events!

Report from Waste Management on best compost practices

Presentation & Discussion:

Your Pandemic Garden 2.0: “You started it last year, now what?”

Led by neighbor gardener and Seattle Tilth Alliance Community Education Manager Chris Hoffer. Learn more about starting and maintaining a garden to grow food in the city. Meet other neighborhood gardeners and share ideas and inspiration!

Chris will take us through:

Getting Started: Beds, Boxes and Containers
Plants for Success
Tips for Long-term Success
Resource sharing + Q&A

Participation info is on the HPAC website.

    Just a suggestion to consider natives plants and ground-covers. Many mass produced plants are not as beneficial to our local pollinators and more than few are even harmful. Tons of info online and plenty of books available but just wanted to put it out there for people planning gardens other than vegetable gardens. Its a passion of mine.

    Great ideas Kram! We are excited to be talking about this positive topic. We’ll return to the Home Zone Plan with a final presentation from SDOT in early March – more details to follow.

Sorry, comment time is over.
