I am late in getting this out, but wanted to publicize a great event that supports the Miller Library at the Center for Urban Horticulture here in Seattle, where I volunteer weekly. The library is an amazing and not-well-enough-known resource for area horticulturalists from beginner to professional, and the annual book sale coming up this weekend is one of its biggest fundraisers.
Helping sort through a few of the books, I found many treasures and had to stop myself from making a giant pile or wish list. There are classics like “The Complete Shade Gardener” by George Schenk and Sunset’s Western Garden book, as well as some decomissioned library copies that are rare and wonderful. To have a chance at the most special books, you might have to attend the pre-sale party Friday night!
