I treated myself to a day off on Friday to take a spin around the Northwest Flower and Garden show. Among the amazing show gardens, plants, roots, shoots, seeds, greenhouses, coldframes, tools, trinkets, baubles, snacks and As Seen on TV fun there was a large amount of information available from garden groups and nurseries. I was so impressed by the volunteers and professionals that devoted their time and expertise to the show.
Here are a few of the gems that got me excited - a virtual "show homework list" for myself.
Local Cascade Harvest Coalition is a nonprofit organization dedicated to connecting local farmers and consumers. Coming out with a cookbook soon.
Edible Seattle I had a lovely chat with editor Jill Lightner about growing your own and local food. Loved the articles in the free issue!
