WSB: Midwinter garden education and planning

Thanks again to WSB for this story. Aviva with Community Harvest of West Seattle sends these announcements:

Community Harvest of Southwest Seattle has been very busy planning. Based on the 180 responses to a recent WSBlog survey, CH will be partnering with Seattle Tilth to
bring some favorite hands-on gardening classes to West Seattle. Other classes will be offered as well in cooking from the garden and tree pruning. In the next few months:
* Cooking Seasonally From Your CSA – Saturday 1/30 2PM – 4PM
* Indoor Seed Starting with Tilth – Saturday 2/20 10AM – Noon
* Traditional Preserving with Lactic Fermentation – Saturday 2/20 10AM – Noon
* Fruit Tree Pruning – Saturday 2/27 10AM – Noon

Several spaces will be reserved in each class for participants who would like to volunteer in place of paying the class fee.

View the entire list. Tilth’s Comprehensive Organic Gardening Class will be offered in West Seattle as well.

[second announcement] A Community Orchard in West Seattle…Just Imagine!

Abundant fruit trees and native edibles…a diverse habitat for wildlife… a pleasant place for people to gather…a demonstration garden of trees and vines which thrive in our climate… classes on fruit tree horticulture and preserving foods…Yes, this could be possible in West Seattle. Does this interest you? Give CH your feedback by answering this quick survey (go here).

Several of these classes are at St James or South Seattle Community College in the Delridge Neighborhoods.
