Columbia City Farmers Market

The 2011 Farmers Market season opens on Wednesday, April 27th. It runs every Wednesday from 3-7pm till October 19th.

Last year, after more than a decade in the same location, the Columbia City Farmers Market moved out onto Edmunds Street. This year, with the support of the entire market community including farmers, shoppers, neighbors and staff, we'll continue to set up on Edmunds Street …every Wednesday.

ecumenical Ash Wednesday service

Please join us tonight as we begin the season of Lent with an ecumenical Ash Wednesday at Church of Hope in collaboration with our neighbors at Columbia Lakewood Church. This service will include prayer, reflection, communion, and imposition of ashes.

Every Wednesday in Lent (March 16- April 13) we will gather at 6pm (or when you can get there!) for a simple meal of soup and bread, followed by a lovely sung service called Holden Evening Prayer.

Mid-March Massage Move

Later this month, Columbia Citizen Wendell Dyck will be moving his massage practice (Massage For Seattle Inc.) out of his home and into the Weed Bldg in the heart of Columbia City.

Five years ago I started seeing massage clients in my home. For the first several years, while I was still practicing law during the day, that was a wonderful option. Now that my focus is squarely on my massage practice it's time to move the business a few blocks to a larger (and cat free) space.

music lessons

My teaching schedule has opened up to allow a few spaces for private piano lessons — I teach both children and adults.

Musikgarten classes are also in session. Join a toddler class Wednesday mornings for the last month. Fees are prorated. We'll start up a new session at the end of April.

Private lessons can start any time. To learn more, visit annsmusikgarten.com, send me an email at ten.tsacmoc|omisja#ten.tsacmoc|omisja, or give me a call at 722-8962.

Rainier Community Kitchen

Rainier Community Kitchen is an opportunity for neighbors to gather to cook good food together and go home with meals for their families. Our combined shopping dollars go to healthy, vegetarian ingredients and we enjoy learning new recipes as we cook together. Currently, we meet on the second Thursday of the month, 6:30-8:30pm.

Register by 5pm Wednesday, March 9 for the class on March 10. The fee is $25 and you'll enjoy two hours of camaraderie with your neighbors, a sense of accomplishment, and 4-6 servings of 4 menu items to take home.

The style of yoga is primarily a gentle flow or vinyasa yoga, where movement and breath are united. Practice ends with deep relaxation and guided visualization. Modifications are always offered.
