Harvest Fair at Seattle Tilth

04-Sep-2008
This Saturday, Seattle Tilth is sponsoring a Harvest Fair from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.  The fair will be held at Meridian Park behind the Good Shepherd Center (4649 Sunnyside Ave N) in Wallingford.
 
There are numerous planned activities and events!  Check out the Marketplace, Community Village, live music, chickens, goats, bees and much, much more.  From their press release…
For 30 years Seattle Tilth has been educating people about growing their own organic food, supporting local farmers and creating a strong local food system. If you have interest in fresh local food, gardening, supporting a local economy, improving the environment, your personal health, or having a good time, then you will not want to miss Seattle Tilth’s Harvest Fair. With a theme of “Celebrate Local Food,” the event boasts a full day of hands-on activities, educational opportunities, sustainable shopping, great food and good old fashioned fun not found anywhere else.
 
Attend one of the many free presentations by local experts. Chef Lesa Sullivan will demonstrate methods of food preservation to help you eat locally year round; nutritionist Acacia Larson will discuss health benefits of eating local food; Garden Hotline educator Emily Bishton will illustrate why wildlife friendly gardening works as natural pest control; and “local hero” Sue Mc Gann, of Lettuce Link’s Giving Garden at Marra Farm, will connect local food choices to a global perspective. Interested in foraging? Then take a walk with local plant guru Arthur Lee Jacobson and learn about Wild Edible Plants, then have him sign a copy of his book “Wild Plants of Greater Seattle”.
