It’s going to be a scorcher this weekend with temperatures expected to be in the high 80’s by Saturday. The City of Seattle has even issued an Excessive Heat Warning, and in response has ensured that several public places will be open to the public to take refuge from the heat.

Since it will be such a beautiful day on Saturday, what better way to spend it than taking a walk through the West Woodland/East Ballard neighborhood visiting edible gardens and supporting Sustainable Ballard? The 7th Annual Sustainable Ballard Edible Garden tour is a must attend event where you can get ideas from your neighbors on what could be possible in your own garden! Sign in anytime between 10am and 3pm and get your $10 ticket plus a map at West Woodland Elementary (5601 4th Ave NW).
Be sure to bring the sunscreen, a floppy hat and a bottle of water to stay cool on your walk or ride through the neighborhood, then, when you’re done, head over to Ballard Commons Park and cool down in the Spray Park!
