Take The Commons with you this summer

Posted on Tuesday, June 19, 2012

ZambiaCommonsHats_SnapshotLast summer, two Commons hats traveled to Zambia where they were worn by Fathers Ron Hidaka, left, and Bert Otten. How about you? Here's your chance to get a free Commons hat. All you have to do is commit to sending us a picture of yourself wearing the hat somewhere, sometime this summer. You don't have to go far; the picture could be taken right here in Seattle, preferably near a landmark or while doing something fun. But really, as long as you're wearing the hat, any picture will do. E-mail The Commons to let us know if you'd like to participate and we'll arrange to get you a hat. (We have 10 hats available. First come, first served.)

New planters at Murphy

Posted on Tuesday, June 05, 2012

MurphyGardens_SnapshotThank you to Ben Williams, gardener in the Department of Grounds, for this photo and explanation: "Erin Shankel, the RA for the Murphy Apartments approached me a while back with the idea of renovating the planters in the courtyards there. (On May 24) about 10 volunteer students were there to help plant primroses, tiarellas and bergenias in the Murphy planter boxes. I gave a brief talk on the importance of gardening with native plants and fostering biodiversity through informed plant selection."
