Delridge Night Market Wants You!


On Sept. 11th, the North Delridge Neighborhood Council participated in the
DNDA's Delridge Night Market event.
We had a blast meeting neighbors and providing a silk screen your own "Heart
Delridge" shirt activity.

Night Market organizer Phillippia Goldsmith would love to see the
event include neighbors who have crafts or art or goodies to sell -
she's got access to tables and chairs, but not tents. To get the scoop
and participate in the last market on Oct. 16th from 3-7pm, email Phillippia
at PhillippiaG@dnda.org - or just mark your calendars to show up and
buy fresh local veggies and support the effort those evenings.

We'll be there hosting the Heart Delridge Print Your Own shirt from 3-5pm. Don't want to get your hands dirty? Just bring $15 and buy one!

October Cider Press!

A fun way to use up apples, and meet or catch up with your neighbors - join us for this season's Cider Press!

When: October 23, 12-4pm
Where: Karl’s house, 5624 26th SW,
What to bring: your own CLEAN windfall, store bought or gleaned apples, pears and your own containers, plus snacks to share. Please don't bring your dogs.

Last year my family brought half a paper grocery bag full of apples and that made 2 quarts of fresh cider. We washed the apples, and didn't cut them up or trim off those parts that bugs nibbled. It was a great way to make use of apples we would have otherwise put in the compost bin.

Plus Karl's garden is a local treasure - it's been part of the West Seattle Garden Tour.

Best,
Holli
