NE 95th Street is a narrow, two-lane arterial without sidewalks. This year due to changes in school attendance boundaries, some Wedgwood students will need to cross NE 95th Street on their way to the newly opened Jane Addams Middle School (JAMS) at 11051 34th Ave NE, just north of Nathan Hale High School.
Since 35th Ave NE is closed at the site of the Meadowbrook Community Center at NE 107th Street, students on their way to JAMS will walk on 30th Ave NE. At that point on NE 95th Street, containers of crossing flags are being installed to help students alert drivers to their presence as they cross. All drivers are urged to slow down and watch out for students beginning on Wednesday, September 3, along NE 95th Street as well as all other area roadways.
The season of autumn plant sales will open on Saturday, September 6, right here in Wedgwood at the Nature Shop of the Seattle Audubon Society at 8050 35th Ave NE. Local plant nurseries who will be represented will include Botanica, Discovery Gardens, Fairmeadow Nursery, Madrona Gardens, and Tadpole Haven Native Plants. Come to the sale from 10 AM to 4 PM on September 6, support local businesses and get a good start on your fall plantings.
Sustainable NE Seattle will sponsor a Community Barter Fair and Cider Pressing festival on Saturday, September 27, from 1 to 4 PM. Bring your home-grown and homemade goods to barter with others at the Fair, to be held at The Gathering Place at Hunter Tree Farm, 7744 35th Ave NE, next to the Wedgwood Post Office.
You and your neighbors can collect the apples from your yard trees and bring them to the Fair to be pressed into cider. Please bring all the containers you will want to use, such as washed milk or juice containers, and bring extra to share. Bring the kids to see how food can be conserved and shared.
