Welcome to a new year! In spite of everything happening in the outside world, the garden is still waiting for us, and it’s time to make plans and read seed catalogs… and the Jan 2021 Bumblebee Skookum newsletter, with a focus on planning. Wendy Devlin on planning for seed saving, Nicole Narbonne on planning (or not!) for food preservation, Kevin Wilson on planning for food production…. plus what you can plant now, food from the windowsill, member tips and photos, and more.
Content gathered this month by Kevin Wilson, layout and editing by Christine Dudgeon. We could use an editor for February if you’d like to help out! Use the contact page to let us know.
It’s time for the last Skookum newsletter of the year! Thanks to Brooke Oxley for (re)starting this newsletter, and producing many of the issues.
Your Skookum Board wishes you the best for the holidays, no matter how strange and unusual they may be. The light is coming!

Hey Skookies, your Board are working away in the background here but we need to know more about what you want! So we’ve put together a survey for you to tell us. Just 1 page, 10 questions, won’t take long, but will help us a lot. Here’s the link:
Because we want to take action on this information, we’d like to get the results sooner rather than later. Deadline for completing the survey in time for us to use your answers is midnight on Sunday, May 10th.
