Upcoming Events

Tu B’Shevat

Sunday, February 4th, at 2:00 PM
Magnuson Park, Parking lot E4

Join congregations from Bet Alef, Seattle First Baptist Church and Beth Shalom for tree planting at Magnuson Park in north Seattle sponsored by Plant for the Planet.

There is no charge and the event is very informal. Bring gardening gloves and spades, if you have them.

RSVP to Manny Jacobowitz or 206-769-3759

There will be a brief talk (5-10 minutes) by one of the kids from Plant for the Planet about their organization and a teaching about Tu B’Shevat. Tom Kelly, the Forest Steward from Green Seattle Partnership, will explain how to plant a tree. If there are few enough people, we’ll go around in a circle for everyone to say why they came. We’ll walk into the park’s forest to a good site, and apply spades and/or mattocks to soil. Treats served. Enter the park at NE 65th Street, go left when the road tees off.
