Plant Walk at Northern State Recreational Area - FREE

Looking for a great Mother's Day gift? Bring your mom on a 2-3 hour plant walk at Northern State Recreational Area in Sedro-Woolley, WA.

We will meet at the main parking lot at 10am. We will learn all about the native plants growing in a few different ecologies in the park. We'll cover identification and which plants are good for food, medicine, tools and attracting wildlife. We'll also look at patterns in the plant communities that can be used in our gardens at home. When you're able to mimic natural patterns, and work with nature instead of against her, your gardens will become more productive with significantly less work. You won't want to miss this walk. Best part about it, it's FREE!!

We ask that you please RSVP for the walk so we can anticipate who will be coming. You can RSVP by clicking here

FREE WORKSHOP - Soil Biology: How to Create a Healthy Soil Food Web in Your Gardens at Home

In this workshop, I'll focus on the soil food web and how they cycle nutrients. I'll discuss how to breed biology in both our compost piles and our garden beds so that we never have to add amendments of any kind. We will end the workshop by doing a biological analysis of soil samples under the microscope. I encourage participants to bring in soil samples from their own garden so that we can analyze them in class.

Barter Potluck
Feb

to Feb 25

Barter Potluck

  • Raven's Roots Naturalist School (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Recently, we helped create a group called the Skagit Barter Potluck (it's on Facebook if you'd like to join - see below). The purpose of the group is to bring together the local community once per month to trade goods, skilled labor, and to share food and network. Each month, the potluck will be held at a different location in Skagit county. Anything can be traded (including items that you haven't made yourself) and the only rule is that there cannot be any cash exchanged.

We are excited to host the first official barter potuck for the group at our campus and hope to host many more in the future. The next potluck will be held on March 31 at another residence in Skagit county. To keep up to date with all future potlucks and to find out more information on the upcoming one, feel free to join the group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/271167616748340/.

We'll start eating at 5pm and start trading shortly after. See you there!
