Seedsaving gives us the unique opportunity to dance with life and play a distinct role in our nourishment. We can nurture plants for the special qualities that sustain us in uncertain futures. As corporations attempt to take control of our genetic diversity, seed saving becomes an important political act. Come join us to learn how you can take responsibility for your own food supply by saving your own seed from your garden. We will be discussing harvest of cultivated and native seeds as well as flowers and vegetable crops. Seed saving is a great localized buffer against the globalization of our food supply as it encourages diversity and increases the resilience in our gardens from pests and disease.

...Jove shield thee well.
The Olympia Sea Scouts have been in this area for over 40 years. The Oly Sea Scouts is a group that helps teen boys and girls learn all about boating, sailing, water safety, how to keep a boat in shape and allows local youth the opportunity to cruise local waters or go sailing on long cruises far from home free of charge to them and their families.
In order to provide this experience to local youth, we have to hold fundraisers. Our largest fundraiser is the Christmas Tree Fundraiser and this year's is extremely important as we are raising money for a new ship. Our current ship, The Gillespie, Sea Scout Ship 453, is is pretty bad shape. So we unfortunately are going to have to decommission it. Any help that you can give would be greatly appreciated.
