    Celebrate Food Day

    Wednesday, Oct. 29, 7:00 p.m.
    Campion Ballroom
    FREE   
     A tasting of local (and FREE!) food! Learn how groups on and off campus are working for food justice. Food Day inspires Americans to change their diets and our food policies. Eating Real can save your own health and put our food system on a more humane, sustainable path. With America’s resources, there’s no excuse for hunger, low wages for food and farm workers, or inhumane conditions for farm animals.

    Forest Restoration

    Peppi’s Playground and Woods, 3233 E Spruce Street, Seattle, 98122
    Friday, November 7, 2014, from 8:45 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

    Volunteers are needed to assist Leschi K-5 elementary students in planting native shrubs and trees in Peppi’s Woods.  For many students at Leschi, last year’s planting day was the FIRST time they had entered a forest.  Many of the students entered with fear, and left asking to stay longer.  It’s an inspiring and energizing experience to re-connect kids to nature.  

    The Green Seattle Partnership Forest Stewards program provides ways for students to extend their learning beyond their classroom, educate future forest caretakers, and introduce students to the natural areas in their neighborhoods as a resource for play, health and learning.  Volunteers can do all day, or commit to half the day (8:45 am to 12 pm or 12 pm to 3 pm). If you are interested in volunteering, contact Green Seattle Partnership Forest Steward, Jana Robbins, jana_b@earthlink.net, 206-390-0438 for more information.
