September’s Community Forum: Gardening During Milder El Niño Winter

September’s Sustainable West Seattle Community Forum will discuss Winter gardening in the Northwest. Note the change in location.

Join us Monday, September 17th, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the South Seattle Community College Horticulture Center, Community Orchard of West Seattle. South Seattle Community College’s Horticulture Center is located at 6400 16th Avenue SW, and the community orchard is located slightly east of the Horticulture Center near the West Duwamish Greenbelt at the eastern edge of the campus.

This year is predicted to be an El Niño winter in the Northwest which means milder temperatures and great conditions for winter gardening.

Join Sustainable West Seattle with local gardeners Helen Shampain and Stu Hennessey as we discuss what to grow this winter as well as methods of keeping crops protected from frost and rain. We also will share recipes for healthy winter food. Bring your left over seeds from this season to trade with or donate to others
