    Keep your garden growing into the fall and even through the winter with seeds that are available right now at the King County Seed Lending Library inside the PNA Tool Library.

  • Cheers to you and the favorite beers (and ciders)!

    Cheers to you and the favorite beers (and ciders)!

    The PNA Summer Beer Tastes was a success for year 13! Ticket sales were record-breaking, the weather was perfect, the brews were delicious (and many of them special for the event!), and the mood was jovial. We were tickled to see so many Hawaiian shirts and beachy outfits, adding to the festiveness of the afternoon. It was extra fun that brewers also got into it by bringing fun (and yummy!) tropical-flavored beers and decorating themselves and their stations. And the crowd favorites were......

  • The egregious separation of immigrant families: What can we do?

    The egregious separation of immigrant families: What can we do?

    The policy of separating children from their parents at the southern border was outrageous and tragic. Now that policy has changed, and we are not sure what the impact will be or when families will be reunited. We have heard from many community members, and we will be passing along, through Facebook, information from Northwest Immigrant Rights Project about the situation and actions we can take. On Friday, June 22, over 100 community members at the Phinney Farmers Market wrote messages to officials, both national and local, who can have an impact. We have information and supplies to write these postcards at the Phinney Center, or you can use the information in this post to send from home.  Stay tuned for other efforts. ...
