Plants & Manure Galore!

Doo for You and Plant Sale JM (1) TreeSale2014_MichaelBrianPeople throughout Kitsap will be busy in their yards (if the rain ever stops). Last Friday & Saturday (Feb. 28 & Mar. 1) were the pickup days for our annual Native Plant Sale.

Thousands of plants were reserved in January and plenty of enthusiastic folks turned up to collect their orders.

Several local native plant nurseries joined us at the Fairgrounds Sheep barn with additional plants for sale.

 

TreeSale_SunbreakIf you missed out on the native plant sale this year, join our plant sale mailing list to receive updates for next year’s sale.

You’ll need to provide your name, email and/or mailing address, and whether you’d like to receive the Plant Sale newsletter via email, mail, or both. DooForYouSign

 

Saturday was also our annual ‘Doo for You’ event, where we give out free aged manure from the previous year’s county fair.

Around 75 people showed up to collect free doo.

Kitsap’s Parks and Recreation department provided and operated a loader to fill the trucks, and KCD sent a staff member to hand out safety information and composting instructions to all of the participants.

No truck? No problem! A shovel and buckets got the job done, too.

Sometimes, there was quite a long wait. But the people found ways to keep themselves entertained…

KCD’s 100th Rain Garden

Written January 3rd, 2014
Categories: Rain Garden, Stormwater

We celebrated the installation of the 100th rain garden to be built through our cost share program last month at Olalla Elementary School. In addition to building the rain garden, the project introduced students to the benefits of rain gardens and issues surrounding pollution and stormwater.

We’ll continue to work towards our next hundred rain gardens with our Dig Day projects in 2014.
