Coming Events--Community Center in Cathlamet
February 21, 2019
As spring creeps closer, outside activities are inevitable. To me, one of the greatest joys in life, is to plant a seed, patiently trusting that in fact, it will grow. Whether it is a flower, a vegetable or an idea, all that is needed, is the initial will to follow through with the first step. Do you already have a garden? Do you enjoy canning foods? Are you interested in starting one, but don’t know where to begin? Perhaps you secretly long to eat more of your yard and less from the store. If you don’t already have it on your calendar, Saturday March 9 at 10 a.m., is the Free Seed Exchange. Every green thumb of every level is invited to join in this exciting exchange. Sharing seeds and ideas with fellow community members creates a green-camaraderie, it not only improves the harvest but strengthens skill. There will be Master Gardeners on-site to lend guidance on seed starting and seed saving. You do not need to have seeds to share to be a part of this, so make a point to come out to the Community Center and start envisioning how you can grow.
Next Tuesday, February 26 is another Wahkiakum Outdoors presentation. Come and learn the trials and tribulations of a local game warden with our own Jay Brightbill, he will be at the Hope Center at 6:30. Brown Bag social group will gather Friday at 11 and Sandra Sews is happening every Thursday at 10.
I hope there are some rainbows to even out the rain for you all this week. Take care, Wahkiakum! “Goodness is about character – integrity, honesty, kindness, generosity, moral courage, and the like. More than anything else, it is about how we treat other people.” D.P.
