Want to get out of the drizzle on Sunday? Come and say hello in the nice dry market space where from 11am till 5pm, I’ll be perched at a table for Digging the City. with books and a bit of community information about the Gorge Tillicum Urban Farmers. At 11:15 I’ll be stepping into the community kitchen to read from my book, and talk about the Gorge Tillicum Urban Farmers community seed bank initiative.
