July's monthly meeting: Attracting Pollinators
Tuesday, July 31, 2018
Anacortes Senior Center, 1701 22nd St.
There are a wealth of industrious and often-overlooked insects out there that ensure our gardens are both beautiful and bountiful. Come learn who they are and how to provide them with the conditions they need to work hard for you. Virgene Link is a WSU Skagit Country Master Gardener volunteer educator and Anacortes resident with a passion for raising the profile of critters whose work in ensuring plentiful harvests and balanced ecosystems is often overlooked or disrupted.

Anacortes Farmer's Market
During the summer Anacortes Farmer’s Market season, TF&F volunteers staff a booth on the last Saturday of each month. They donate their labor to help us re-use by repairing objects that still have life in them – lamps, small appliances, whatever a handyman can fix.
Your donation for this work goes to support the Anacortes Family Center, a shelter for homeless women and children.
- You get to reduce, re-use, recycle and repair with your tax-deductible donation.
- The planet gets to breathe a bit.
- Your community is strengthened by your financial donation.
We call that a win/win.
Got a broken appliance you’re hoping to repair? Or a lamp that needs attention? How about those two watches that need new batteries? Broken or chipped items that need mending? “If you can set it on the table, we’ll have a go at it (although toasters are discouraged).”
