Pickering Farm Garden open house
Bring fresh ideas to a city open house Thursday night. City officials and Seattle Tilth staffers want to hear suggestions for improving Pickering Farm Garden.
The open house is from 5-7 p.m. at City Hall Northwest, 1775 12th Ave. N.W.
City officials formed a partnership with the Tilth to plant the seed for the garden’s vision, design and growth.
Officials have received several ideas for the garden, including establishing city demonstration gardens, offering hands-on educational opportunities for organic gardening, creating a hub of a connected community trail system that includes other community garden sites and connecting to a Gilman Boulevard edible landscaping parkway.
Pickering Farm Garden is located on the west side of Pickering Barn. City and Tilth employees hosted an earlier open house related to the garden June 11.
King County historic roads open house
Bring questions about the proposed historic designation for a section of Issaquah-Fall City Road to a King County Landmarks Commission open house Thursday night. The event is scheduled for 7 p.m. at High Point Village, 1777 Highpoint St., Enumclaw.
Issaquah-Fall City Road and seven other corridors have been identified for unique historic and scenic qualities.
King County Roads Services Division officials are nominating the eight corridors to become community landmark Heritage Corridors.
The section of Issaquah-Fall City road that would receive the designation is between Duthie Hill on the Sammamish Plateau and Fall City.
King County Landmarks Commission members will take public comments into consideration before determining whether the roads meet community landmark criteria.
