Autumn Activities: Home-Grown Barter Fair and Cider Pressing at the Tool Library

On Saturday, September 24th from 1 to 3 PM there will be autumn-season activities at the Northeast Seattle Tool Library.  Bring home-made items or home-grown produce for barter, bring your apples for pressing, and bring a donation for the paella which will be served (a Spanish dish of rice, saffron, chicken, seafood, etc., cooked and served in a large shallow pan.)

Come trade your home-made or home-grown goods with friends and neighbors! Barter skills and services! You can trade your excess zucchini for homemade pies. Barter the cute knit hats you have made, for the services of someone who can fix your bike. Get to know your community, share talents and products.
