Our latest edition of Coming Up:
“Share the Bounty” Produce Stands!
Transition Fidalgo and Friends has three “Share the Bounty” stands offering free, fresh produce to our local community. Gardeners are encouraged to drop off surplus fruits and veggies to help those who would welcome the food.
Your support helps to bring fresh, healthy food to those who have no access to such items, or have no garden of their own.
Thank you for making this program, now in its second year, a success!
Where are the stands?
— 2509 H Avenue, the Warren Carr residence
— Entrance to the Library on 10th St.
— Harbor House at 719 Q Ave.
Note: the stands will be back up late spring or early summer 2022
Our studies in the ACFL are fully involved again! We have volunteers documenting when local plants bud and bloom, checking soil moisture, photographing the Little Cranberry burn area, checking cedar tree health, measuring the weather, counting birds, and so much more! Join us if you wish.
Fix-It Days — Ways!
By Larry Collinge,
The Fix-it Booth is alive and well in Old Town. We
(the Fix-it Techs) missed this summer season at the
Farmer’s Market because of Covid concerns.
Maggie and I are not going to Mexico this winter,
so we’ve decided to re-boot the Fix-it Booth in my
garage, located at 1914 11th St.
My phone number is 360.202.5618.
Give me a call if you have a small appliance, lamp,
furniture or what have you that needs some TLC,
and I’ll give it my best, or tell you that it may not be
worth the time and energy to repair it. I’m doing
this free of charge, with the exception of any new
parts (switches, sockets or wire terminals) that may
be necessary to complete a repair.
I also do small welding jobs, as long as it isn’t aluminum. All I ask is
for a donation to Transition Fidalgo & Friends.
If and when you visit my shop, please wear a mask,
and I’ll do the same. Thanks.
