I spent March with the amazing folks at EarthCorps. Did you know that some of my Douglas Fir relatives live in the forests at Seward Park? I got to see them when I spent the day there with the students from Epiphany School and Seattle Audubon. EarthCorps staff taught me that March marks the end of planting season. We stop planting in March because as the days warm up plants (like me) begin getting ready for their summertime growth spurts. Native plants can go into shock if they are planted during this time of growth without supplemental water. Speaking of growth spurts, I’ve grown almost an inch since we last chatted in April! See how fast I’m growing up in my Facebook Album.
Next month you can find me touring our April events and cheering on racers at the Seattle Magazine 5k.

Save the Date: Green Seattle Day
With snow on the mountains and cold air in the city it is hard to think about next fall, but here at the Green Seattle Partnership planning has already begun for this year’s Green Seattle Day. We have set a date and are excited to announce that Green Seattle Day 2013 will be held on November 2nd. If you know that you want to volunteer or organize a work, community or friend volunteer group, email Katie at email@example.com and we will update you with details as they are planned.
