DISTRICT BOARD AND COMMITTEES Our District Board Officers and Committee Chairman serve a two year term. Board Meetings are January, April, August and October. Alternately our general meetings for members take place four times a year in the months of February, May, September and November at the UW Center for Urban Horticulture. Greater Seattle District is a 501c3 non profit organization..
The District Director selects the theme for a two year term along with a tree, bird, flower, bird and beneficial insect to tie-into that theme. The 2017-2019 theme is Listen to the "Eco”-Learn and Take Action. My goals these two years will include learning about our ecosystems in our gardens, locally and in our state. We will take what action we can to sustain and nurture these ecosystems for now and the future.
