A Big Thank You to those who helped our successful Sale:

The core of the Annual Chuckanut Center Spring plant sale is our collection of heirloom tomato and pepper varieties. We are planning on a larger range of plants this year: many more vegetables, including short season heirloom eggplants, tomatillos, lettuce, strawberries, hostas, cucumbers, and ground cherries.
With nearly 100 heirloom tomato varieties, you are certain to find a favorite.
All tomatoes will be priced at $2 and specialty plants $5
The Annual Chuckanut Center Spring plant sale is on Saturday May 14th from 10am-2pm.

Event: Bokashi: Urban Composting using Fermentation

Image
Bokashi means "fermented organic matter" in Japanese.
This composting method is great for those lacking the space for a traditional compost set-up because it is done right in your kitchen with a five gallon bucket.

The process is complete, ready to add nutrients to the soil, in one month!

We will learn how to use the Bokashi system from in your kitchen, to creating your own starter, to how to add the rich microbial finished product to your garden, planters, or existing compost bin.

Class May 7th 1:30-2:30

Donations to support the Center and Teacher appreciated 

Getting to Chuckanut Center 
We are located in Bellingham's South neighborhood, at 107 Chuckanut Drive North in Fairhaven Park, a short walk from the Fairhaven shopping district.

Getting here on foot: From Fairhaven, walk south on 12th St. and cross the Padden Creek bridge. We are immediately on your left after crossing the bridge. Or, you could walk along Padden Creek on the Interurban Trail and follow the signs …
