Naturescaping Basics Workshop

Sunday, September 23, 1-3:30 pm, Tualatin Hills Nature Center: 15655 SW Millikan Way, Beaverton, free, registration required.

Nature scapes

Naturescaping is the practice of using native plants in your landscape. Benefits include less maintenance (fewer pests and less water needed), habitat and food for birds, pollinators, and other wildlife, and plants that are easier to propagate in your yard.

This FREE workshop will introduce naturescaping concepts and basic site planning principles, including: using native plants to provide layering and year-round features; attracting native birds, butterflies, and other pollinators; creating low maintenance landscapes to conserve water and energy; preventing pollution through reduction or elimination of chemical use.

Register for the workshop here: swcd.net/event/naturescaping-workshop-3/.

This free workshop is made possible by grant money passed along by the now-disbanded non-profit Rock Creek Watershed Partners, because watershed health benefits everyone!

Washington County Museum Free Family Mornings

Saturday, September 8, 10-1 pm, Washington County Museum, 17677 NW Springville Rd., free

The Washington County Museum kicks off another season of the Free Family Mornings series with a workshop led by local comedian Mel Heywood! This all-ages, participatory workshop will create a collaborative, supportive environment where participants can learn the basics of doing stand-up comedy through stage movement, writing exercises, and voice work. Learn how to deliver a great & funny story using your own life experience & observations! Like all of the museum’s Free Family Morning events, the class is totally free, and all ages and backgrounds are encouraged to join in. Come with a couple of possible joke ideas as a starting point, and be ready to have FUN!

Mel Heywood is a Portland-based artist, producer, teacher, and stand-up comedian. She’s produced shows like CULT STATUS & Clap Trap, runs an annual free comedy school, and has performed for several years with Lez Stand Up (recently named “Best Comedy Night of 2018” by Willamette Week!). Heywood uses comedy as a tool for education and empowerment, noting that “history is made and recorded by those whose voices are heard and amplified; helping students find and amplify their own voices through performance and stand-up comedy is an amazing experience, and something I hope to share with everyone I work with!”

Free Family Mornings is an ongoing series hosted by the Washington County Museum. Each month during the school year the museum hosts a family-friendly, no-experience-needed workshop led by a teaching artist from the community. Museum entrance is always FREE during Free Family Morning events, and includes access to all rotating and permanent exhibits.

Sunshine Pantry seeks food, supplies, volunteers

Monday-Friday, 10 am-2 pm, 10895 SW 5th St., Beaverton

Sunshine Pantry is an independent, non-profit organization that provides needed food and supplies to everyone in need, without overhead fees, or the restrictions and documentation that some larger programs require.

Currently they are helping kids have the supplies they need for the school year. They also need volunteers to sort and pack items, and distribute food and other items to the folks who come to their facility. Children are always welcome to help too, and they have many volunteering opportunities during the weekend (call for more information).

There’s always an ongoing need for donations of all types of food, particularly fresh fruits and vegetables. They also need folks to help pick up donated food, and they’re hoping for a donated van!

As the holidays approach, keep their clients in mind when you’re shopping. They provide Christmas for many of their families, including turkeys and hams.

Founder Sharon Straus says, “We have many moms who are living in cars with their children. To help them we are giving them gas station gift cards in $10 amounts to help them provide air conditioning and heating. We also try to give them gift cards to various restaurants so they can have a nice family dinner since they lack cooking facilities. Any restaurant cards will help.”

“Monetary donations will help us to help all of our families. We are currently in a time of struggle and now more than ever need help from our community. Just keeping all the freezers and refrigerators running costs plenty!” she continues. Sunshine Pantry feeds over 2000 families each year.

If you have any questions please call Sharon Straus 971-506-7827.

No Child Should Go To Bed Hungry.

Wood Stove Exchange Program

In Washington County, Oregon, one-third of households rely on burning wood as a heat source. Many of them use older and uncertified wood stoves, which are inefficient and produce a high level of fine particle pollution that is especially dangerous for young children and people with existing respiratory conditions.

Since implementing the wood stove exchange program in August 2016, 297 old wood stoves have been replaced, preventing the emission of 145 tons of particulate pollution, harmful gases, volatile organic compounds and hazardous air pollutants.

Washington County Public Health worked with city and county partners to adopt ordinances that prohibit burning wood on poor air quality days. They also partnered with private businesses and local municipalities to offer rebates and grants to residents who replace their old wood stoves with new and cleaner burning devices.

If you use an old wood stove for heat, with program rebates (up to $3500) you may be able to trade it in for a new, more efficient and cleaner heating device and depending on income, may be eligible for a full cost replacement (up to $5000). Apply today at www.WoodStoveExchange.com.

Folk dancing at Leedy

Mondays, Sept. 3 & 17, 7-9 pm, Leedy Grange Hall, 835 NW Saltzman Rd, $6/ $10 couple

Talk to Your Kids About Fire and Life Safety

It’s that time again. Cedar Mill-area students head back to class. For many students, this may be the school year where they will be trusted to be home alone after school.

Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue encourages parents and caregivers to talk to your kids about how and when to call 911 for police, fire, or medical assistance in the event of an emergency. Children should know their address, phone number, and your contact information so that they can provide that information to the emergency dispatcher.

Have phone numbers for family and neighbors posted on the refrigerator, near the phone, or on a designated bulletin board in the event kids need assistance but it’s not an emergency. Also, set house rules on using the stove or microwave. Cooking is one of the leading causes of home fires. Most of the fires start on the stovetop due to food or oil being left unattended while being heated.

The following tips may help your child avoid a fire:

  • Allow cooking privileges based on age and maturity. Consider allowing younger children to only use a microwave or oven to heat food (versus the stovetop). However, use caution when heating food in a microwave due to the potential for burn injuries.
  • If allowed to use the stovetop, never leave food (especially oil) unattended. Pre-teens and teenagers enjoy many activities that can cause them to be distracted and/or forget they’re cooking. Remind children to stay by the stovetop when cooking. If they need to leave — turn off the burner.
  • Keep combustibles such as pot holders, dish towels, food boxes, and magazines away from the stovetop.
  • Never throw water on a grease fire or try to move a flaming pan. Either action can cause the fire to spread or cause burns to a body.
  • If a fire occurs, leave the home and call 911 from a cell phone or a neighbor’s home.

Other safety tips to share include:

  • Never use matches, lighters, or candles. Keep these items away from children and remind them that they are not to be touched by anyone other than an adult.
  • Know two escape routes from every room in the house. One of those could be a window. Create and practice a home fire escape plan.
  • Do not place combustibles like clothes, blankets, or scarves, over a lamp.
  • Do not play with electrical cords, and do not insert anything other than a plug into an electrical socket.
  • Never mix cleaning products.
  • Know where first-aid supplies are located, and consider signing up older children for a first-aid and CPR class.

Local Furniture Bank Helps Families in Need Start the School Year Right

Every child deserves the chance to succeed in school. But many families in Washington County don’t have what they need to support their child’s education. Although the Oregon economy has rebounded from the Great Recession, Washington County has not experienced a decrease in homelessness or housing insecurity. Children experiencing housing instability fall further behind academically and socially than their residentially stable peers.

Furniture plays an important—yet often overlooked—role in keeping people stable in their homes. Basic home furnishings improve our quality of life and self-sufficiency. Lamps to light homes at night, cookware for preparing healthy meals, and beds for sleeping comfortably all provide the foundation for work and school success. With a functional living space, we can move forward in our lives.

Community Warehouse is the only furniture bank in the region. We bring neighbors together by redistributing donated household furnishings that turn empty houses into comfortable, stable, and joyful homes. We provide furnishings for more than 7,799 local residents in need every year.

Our goal is to get families off the floor, and you can help by bring your gently-used tables & chairs, lamps, kitchenware, linens, and other household items—especially mattresses—to Community Warehouse. We’ll make sure your neighbors in need can help their children grow and learn in a safe and comfortable environment. Your generosity will make a lifetime of difference to families in your community.

To donate your new or gently-used furnishings, visit one of our two locations:

Community Warehouse, Portland: 3969 NE MLK Jr Blvd, Portland, OR 97212; 503.235.8786

Community Warehouse, Tualatin, 8380 SW Nyberg St., Tualatin, OR 97062; 503.347.2147

Hours at both locations: M-F: 10 am-4 pm; SS: 10:30 am-4 pm

Check out www.communitywarehouse.org/give-furniture for a full list of accepted items. If you or someone you know needs furniture, please visit www.communitywarehouse.org/get-furniture.
