Slow Food Seattle School Garden Meeting October 4

IMG_9910Healthy eating habits and finding joy in good food and cooking start early in life! Slow Food believes this, and so one of our major programs is working to help establish and maintain school gardens.

If this is an element of Slow Food that appeals to you, come learn more at Slow Food Seattle School Garden committee’s next meeting on October 4.

Here is the event info.

We are very excited to invite you to tour Marra Farm on Saturday, October 4 from 3 to 4:30. The tour will be led by Amelia Swinton, Lettuce Link Education Coordinator. Marra Farm is a 4-acre plot of land in Marra-Desimone Park, South Park and is one of only two historic agricultural parcels inside Seattle city limits that retains an agricultural use today. It is used by several community groups including Concord Elementary School students.

This is a special place in the city and we hope you’ll come! Meet at the Lettuce Link gathering area at 9026 4th Ave S, near the intersection with S Henderson. People can park in the small lot there or along the fence. If people want to come earlier for a day of work planting natives around the Lost Fork of Hamm Creek (on the same piece of land as Marra), come at 10 am! We’ll send out detailed directions with a reminder email closer to the event. An RSVP would also be helpful! 

Please RSVP to if you are interested in joining!
