Have you ever wanted to learn about gardening but were too afraid to ask? Well then, this is the event for you! We are excited to be doing a gardening skillshare with Zenyu community member, Hester Angus, at their homo-stead on Beacon Hill (a stone’s throw from Yummy House). In exchange for the work you will be putting in digging dirt, possibly planting things, learning about the incredible world of gardening, etc, you will be guaranteed a bag full of organic vegetables during summer/fall harvest. Amazing or what?
Participants will not only learn valuable gardening skills and deepen their connection to earth and community, but this project will also provide equitable access to fresh, organic and local produce, normally inaccessible to our communities of color in South Seattle. This work builds off of our successful HUG It Out Work Party at Hilltop Urban Gardens, a community-based urban agriculture, justice, and equity organization in Tacoma, WA in June 2012. (check out:
