 PLANTAMNESTY HOLIDAY PARTY

 

 

 

When: December 12th, 7 - 9 pm

Where: Center for Urban Horticulture, 3501 NE 41st St, Seattle 98195

Join us for our last bash of the year at our annual holiday party. It's a time to reflect, a time to celebrate and a time to enjoy the company of like-minded plant people. We’ve had an unprecedented year of events, fundraising, classes and workshops and we want to talk about it!
We are also going to unveil our new PlantAmnesty t-shirt design and give you a sneak peek at many of the great things we’re planning for 2019!
Sticking with tradition, this will be a potluck event, so bring one of your favorite holiday dishes or money to donate for food and beverage.
This event is free to ALL PlantAmnesty Members. If you have a friend or family member who you think would like to join, please bring them along. We will be prepared to sign up new members and renew old memberships.

The Holly-Dazed Singers will be performing “fractured” holiday/horticulture songs at this year’s Holiday Party on December 12, just as they have for the past several years.  If you would like to join this group of fun-loving amateur singers, you are more than welcome. No audition is necessary, and reading music is not required.  Rehearsals will be Dec 1 and Dec 8 (9-11 each day), and the hour before the Holiday Party starts.  If you are interested, and can commit to the rehearsal schedule, please contact Jack Bautsch at [email protected]

City Fruit Master Fruit Tree Steward Program

Calling all fruit tree enthusiasts! City Fruit is now accepting applications for the 2019 Master Fruit Tree Steward (MFTS) Program.  If you love fruit trees and want to be able to better care for fruit trees in your own backyard, at a neighbor's house, or in public orchards to help preserve Seattle's urban fruit canopy, then this program is for you!
