HPSW Holiday Party – December 10th from 1pm to 4pm

The HPSW Holiday Party will be Sunday Dec 10 1-4 at Madelyn Katzman’s house on North Capitol Hill 

It is a potluck. Bring a dish to share, or wine. HPSW will supply plates and napkins etc. and Madelyn will supply cutlery.
There is also a whilte elephant gift exchange. This is supposed to be some kind of white elepant, something quirky and funny if possible, and not an expensive gift. You are not allowed to bring last year’s gift until next year. Madelyn gets to choose if we can steal gifts already opened, or not.

You can come without sharing in the gift exchange, so don’t avoid us if you aren’t interested in the gift exchange.

Call Madelyn Katzman for directions:  206 328 3202

HPSW Meeting September 18 : 7pm-9pm Lori Brakken on Gardening on a Steep

Gardening on a Steep, North Facing Slope: It’s a Challenge!- Lori Brakken

Lori Brakken, apple ID expert and landscape architect, will join us at our September meeting to talk about her gardening experiences..

Lori has an espalier fence with more than 40 apple trees growing in an elevated bed., supported by bamboo trellising. She has grafted additional varieties to the espaliered trees, so she now has about twice that many varieties of pomme fruit wood. She also grows grapes, blueberries, persimmon, apricots, and plums.
