Milwaukee tool box and work lights lost on Cattle Point Road the evening of Saturday 1/21, just North of Golf Course Road, when they slid out of the bed of our truck. They must have been picked up right away, as they were gone by the time we doubled back to pick them up.

If you did find them, we would really, really appreciate their return. I loved those lights! I’ll make it worth your while.

Thanks to all. Steve Gerrish stevegerrish@comcast.net 206 877 2244 posted 1/22

Housing Needed for New Hannah Farm’s 2023 Farm Crew: Two members of my crew need a place to live by May 1. Access to housing is essential to the success of our local food system. Without it, we can’t scale our work or retain our talent (and valuable members of our community).

Offering a long-term lease is ideal, but even seasonal housing can make a huge impact. Do you have a summer house, guesthouse, cabin, loft, tiny house, trailer, boat…?

To learn more about our crew and their housing needs, please visit https://www.newhannah.com/housing You can also contact Zach Chan (Owner/Manager of New Hannah Farm), at (360) 298-1746 or newhannahfarm@gmail.com posted 2/6
