'Way to Grow' - Our Bimonthly Newsletter

Seattle Tilth's bimonthly newsletter updates members on events and classes, and includes educational and entertaining gardening articles.

December 2009/January 2010 Newsletter
Topics include growing a historic garden with edible heirlooms, Tilth's creation of an "Urban Homestead" garden for the 2010 Northwest Flower & Garden Show, and features on our expanded school garden educator training and our partnership with southeast Seattle schools and community centers. Also included are highlights of our 2010 programming - including a new, early spring plant sale to complement our existing sale. The Garden to Table column tells about growing winter greens, and our Sophisticated Peasant muses on the paltry winter garden but comforts readers that "yule eat again."
February/March 2010 Newsletter
Topics include our new early spring plant sale, gardening education through 'Grandma's wisdom,' a report on our Issaquah garden as it turns two years old, and tips to be an edible gardener on a budget. The Garden Hotline answers questions about soil tests and fruit tree pruning.
April/May 2010 Newsletter
Topics include tips for growing hot-weather crops, how a vegetable garden helps you "grow your own health care," and garden tips to get growing now. We review our award-winning Garden Show display garden, discuss our new consultation service, and preview our Edible Plant Sales. The Sophisticated Peasant tries to jump-start his spring, Garden to Table shares a raw kale salad recipe, and the Garden Hotline offers tips about keeping your lettuce from bolting.
June/July 2010 Newsletter
Topics include starting your winter garden, chickens as the "new chihuahuas," building a teepee trellis to create children's garden magic, cisterns and dealing with too much fruit or a bee swarm. Tilth program profiles include a plant sale follow-up and the Reach 'n Teach job training program. The Sophisticated Peasant discusses gardening ennui and there's a recipe for arugula pizza.
October/November 2010 Newsletter
Topics include planting native edibles, how to source and serve local food at holiday dinners, sheet mulching and hazardous waste disposal. A review of the Harvest Fair, announcement of an annual giving campaign and an update on garden educator training and our Issaquah program are provided. The Sophisticated Peasant waxes poetic about the spotted-wing fruit fly and tomato jam is the recipe.
