If you live in or near Seattle and have a little time free on Saturday, September 6, head over to the Good Shepherd Center in Wallingford for Seattle Tilth’s annual Harvest Fair. Get all the details here.
Goats, bees and chickens to visit, winter veggie starts to buy, a parade at noon, flower wreaths to make, music, organic gardening clinics, compost advice, a farmers’ market, tons of stuff for kids, and even more than that. Rain or shine, it’s a great event.
This family got talked into wearing some of the Tilth staff’s costumes last year. I particularly admired the guy who was willing to be a giant carrot for the parade.
I go every year and always come home with fun stuff to over-winter – rainbow chard, herbs, leeks, broccoli, etc. and all of it goes in the parking strip. Here’s my haul from last year.
Catch it if you can!
