Seeking Event Volunteers!

We need your help to make this fun event happen! If you can contribute even a couple of hours, we’d love to put your hands and skills to work! We need folks to help serve on the buffet line, help tend the barbeque, help wash dishes, and help break down the next day. We even need a couple of hands to help bake the dessert cobblers the day before- no experience necessary! If you can help us out, please contact event coordinator Claire Foster: 425 844-6185 or mountainviewgardening@hotmail.com. Many hands make light work!

What does “Tilth” mean?

Meaning of “Tilth”

Tilth is an Old English word used to describe the structure and quality of cultivated soil. An even older meaning describes it as the cultivation of wisdom and spirit. A soil or person in good tilth was said to be “in good heart.”

The Oxford English Dictionary defines tilth as labor, work, or effort directed to useful or profitable ends, especially in regards to the soil.

“Tilth is something every farmer can recognize but no scientist can measure.” -Walter
