Chimacum-grown Dahlia Tuber Sale Fundraiser
February 13th, 2011 by Katy McCoy

Sunfield Farm and Waldorf School’s 4th/5th grade class is selling Dahlia tubers grown at Plum Wild Farm in Chimacum. They are taking orders now for pick up the weekend of April 8-10. There is much public excitement about these tubers so get your order in early as the orders are filled on a first come first served basis. As part of the Waldorf curriculum Sunfield’s fourth and fifth mixed class students will spend a great deal of this year studying Native American culture, stories and traditions.

In the spirit of the Northwest Native tradition our class, along with other Waldorf schools in the Puget Sound area, will journey to Whidbey Island to participate in the Waldorf regional Potlatch held in May. Our children will be enriched by the three day event and all the learning that can happen in Nature and Community. The Potlatch is a gathering of ritual, celebration, learning and story.

This fundraiser will help ensure that each child in our class will be able to attend the Potlatch and participate in this significant rite of passage. Your support is greatly appreciated.

Orders/reservations are being taken on line at. You can order COD for your tubers and there will be pick up locations in Port Townsend, Chimacum, Kingston, Bremerton and Redmond.  If you prefer a regular old paper order form email or call Rob Story at 360 732 4356, and he will send you one.

These are very vibrant tubers, sustainably grown and fairly priced at $3.00 each.  Get your order in while supplies last.  Photos and details are available at the website.
