Billie Washington of Native Soil Farm says: Harvesting chamomile...I put in a couple of borage blossoms because it looked so pretty. Better than organic, locally grown herbs and produce available at Winlock Saturday Market. On Facebook here.
And you know this caught my attention: Cowlitz Indian Tribe Spiritual Leaders Tanna Engdahl, Roy Wilson, and Elder Patty Kinswa blessed our future Cowlitz River restoration site, called Otter Creek Island on June 23.
The Otter Creek Island Restoration project, undertaken by the Cowlitz and aided by a grant from BNSF, to run July 15-September 15. Details on Facebook here.
