Seventh Generation Supper: Water-wise Vegetables
Tuesday, June 26, 2018
Anacortes Senior Center, 1701 22nd St.
Jane Billinghurst joins us to talk about “Water-wise Vegetables.” Anacortes experiences wet winter and dry summers, which means water is in short supply when most of our vegetables are actively growing–a situation likely to become more pronounced in the future. What strategies can we employ to reduce our reliance on municipal water systems or wells while growing bountiful food gardens? Jane Billinghurst is a WSU Skagit County Master Gardener volunteer educator and Anacortes resident with a particular interest in water conservation in the home garden.

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).”
