Yes, Barb told me about that group. Also about how King County tried to take the garden away from the people. Incredible stupidity. So against everything they are supposed to be for. I can understand you getting discouraged. What's the world coming to anyway?
I am into genealogy too. It sounds as though your family names are German. Both my husband and I have German lines too. Did you know that the Eastside Genealogy Society has an active German Interest Group. They meet the 1st Friday of each month (except July and August) at Crossroads Mall Community Room, from 1 to 3 p.m.
Do you like this genealogywise site? I just signed on an don't know much about how it works.
Just mentioned Klahanie because I think you started the garden there. I was looking for you because you are a Master Gardenera and work with the Pickering Barn but couldn't find your phone number. You spoke to the Pea Patchers at Providence Point two springs ago. Google brought up your Genealogywise page and I thought you might be the right one. I am a genealogist myself. I start a new series of genealogy classes at PP next week.
But that is aside from the point. Are you still a Master Gardener and volunteer at Pickering Place? Would you be willing to speak to a group who are starting a community garden at Mirrormont? They would appreciate your expertise. Ann
