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 - the link is at the bottom). 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.

On Saturday, August 18 we'll be hosting a barter potluck and you're all invited. There will be a garden tour beginning at 4pm and then we will eat and begin trading shortly after 5 (we ask that you bring a table to display your goods since we only have 3 or 4). When the bartering is over, we'll be having a fire so bring your favorite beverages and an instrument. We also have a kayak if you'd like to take a ride on our 1 acre pond and plenty of space for camping if you'd like to spend the night. Our address is 25368 Old Day Creek Road, Sedro-Woolley, WA 98284. Hope to see you all then!

Perennial Vegetable Walk at Raven's Roots Permaculture Farm - FREE

In the west, our diets mainly consist of annual vegetables and very few perennials. The only perennial vegetables that I typically find at the market are asparagus, rhubarb and globe artichoke. Perennial vegetables are significantly higher in nutrients and antioxidants than the annuals and they will be much more resilient with the changes in climate that are coming. 

Join Gabe on a 2 hour walk of the Raven's Roots gardens and we'll look at the over 60 perennial vegetables that we currently have growing. We'll discuss what grows well here in Skagit county and how to grow them. We will meet at the main garden at 10am.

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