Diggin’ Shoreline free community event


Saturday, November 9, 2019, 1:00 to 4:30 PM

Shoreline City Hall, 17500 Midvale Ave N, Shoreline, WA

Feeling a bit down with winter coming on? Doctors are prescribing gardening and nature exposure for what ails us—everything from minor anxiety to serious mental and physical health conditions. It’s been scientifically proven that a healthy dose of nature helps everyone!

Get out of the house and join us for an afternoon among friends and neighbors learning just how essential nature and gardening are to our health and well-being.

The event starts at 1:00pm. You’ll be greeted with refreshments of organic popcorn and apple cider. As you wander the lobby, meet local folks who’ll share simple ways to improve your nature experience. Breathe in the fresh fragrances and feel the foliage of a sensory garden. Learn how to make one yourself.

At 2:00pm, listen to featured speaker, Zsofia Pasztor, founder and executive director of Farmer Frog. Zsofia is an award-winning landscape designer, permaculturist, horticulturist, and arborist who also teaches restoration horticulture, urban agriculture, and low impact development at Edmonds Community College. Through her life work she has observed that when people grow food together, we improve our sense of community as well as our health. She’s passionate about the future of our children who may face preventable, lifestyle-and diet-related diseases.

Before and after our featured speaker, catch a series of related video shorts. Of course, no Diggin’ event would be complete without face painting, and nature crafts for both kids and adults.

Diggin’ Shoreline is an all-volunteer 501(c)3 organization. Volunteers are also needed to help staff this event. To sign up, email us at or call 206-437-9118. Great volunteer opportunity for high school students seeking volunteer hours, too!
