Support Lettuce Link: City People's 4/24, Pacific Science Center, Anthropologie

Looking for something to do this weekend? Join Lettuce Link staff and volunteers at a variety events: learn to grow heirloom vegetables, take a cooking lesson, talk about food and community, listen to some music, and support Lettuce Link!

City People's Garden Store Open House, Saturday, April 24, 11am - 3pm
Learn how to grow your own heirloom vegetables, take a cooking lesson from the chefs of Cafe Flora, get gardening advice from City People's staff, enjoy live music and enter to win a raffle for a deluxe gift basket. 10% of the day's proceeds will go to Lettuce Link! 2939 E. Madison St

Community Forums on Food, Rainier Community Center, Saturday, April 24, 2pm - 4pm
Hosted by the Pacific Science Center, come talk about food and community. Guest panelists to answer your questions and activities for kids! 4600 38th Ave South

Growing Food, Growing Community will be handing out kale and chard starts at the Whole Foods store in Interbay to celebrate Earth Day. They'll also be talking to people about their greenhouse volunteering and Lettuce Link. Stop by and say hi! 2001 15th Ave W

Anthropologie will donate a portion of the proceeds from their "Seed Bombs" to Lettuce Link. Seed bombs are gum-ball sized seed/soil pods filled with wildflowers, which spread flower seeds when left outside. Made by a US company, each pack contains 5 "bombs", made of a mixture of wildflower seeds indigenous to the western US. Until supplies run out.
Available at their University Village or Downtown Stores:
University Village: 2520 NE University Village St
Downtown: 1509 Fifth Ave

Next weekend (May 1 and 2) we hope to see you at Seattle Tilth's Edible Plant Sale! Consider buying some extra starts and growing a row for the food bank this season. Everyone deserves fresh produce.
