Orca School Plant Sale

Slow Food Seattle set up an information table at the Orca School Plant sale yesterday.  It was a gorgeous sunny day, so different than the wintery  morning of our first work party.  The greenhouse must have been packed to the ceiling with plants because there was an abundance of starters outside for sale including: cauliflower, several varieties of tomatoes, peppers, herbs, squash, cucumber, grapes and more.  I was there representing our chapter and to show support for the good work going on at the school. I saw several friends and bought some plants, too. 

Looking good!

There is a noticeable difference from the photo taken at our March work party below and the photos from yesterday’s fundraiser.

The garden has come a long way in just three months.  I’m still so proud of our Slow Food members who did their part back in March helping the Orca school prepare the garden for student learning and this successful fundraiser.
