Spring into Action!

Punxsutawney Phil says that we will have an early Spring! We have so much great stuff planned for the Miller Community Center Garden already. Please read the info below, save the dates, and get ready to spring into action!

If you can attend, provide lumber, cordless or corded drills, or a post-hole digger to help with these projects, please email Sophia at

Monday, February 18 at 5:30pm: Name the Beds! Deadline for submissions.
We want to call our raised beds something a little more exciting and special than 1, 2, 3, etc. What are your suggestions for names? Email with your ideas by 5:30pm on Monday, February 18.

Wednesday, February 20 at 5:30pm: Painting Party
Based on the name suggestions we receive, we will paint the signs for the beds. We also have mini birdhouses to decorate! Find us indoors at the community center. If the weather is cooperative, we will also go work in the garden.

Wednesday, March 13 from 6pm-8:30pm: Construction Carousing
We will build potato planters and raspberry trellising! Find us indoors at the community center.

Thursday, April 18 from 4:30pm-8pm: Earth Day Celebration Plant Exchange! We will begin setup 30 minutes before the event, so volunteers who can help starting at 4pm would be appreciated!

Come celebrate springtime in Seattle with fellow gardeners in your community! Share plants, seeds, tools, supplies, yard art, and knowledge! Everyone is welcome, especially new gardeners. You do not need to bring anything, but reusable or recyclable containers will help to carry away the booty.

More info TBA.
