MA Center PNW Auction
On April 7th we will have the MA Center PNW Auction. PLEASE PLAN TO ATTEND!
It will be in North Seattle/Greenwood Neighborhood, like past years.
 
This auction is our biggest annual fundraiser for the development of the much beloved Maltby property. Please take some time to think about what YOU can donate to the auction. I bet if you look around or ask friends, you will think of that "PERFECT" item to donate.
 
Please think about a service you can offer. It is through these beautiful services that we raise most of the money (even though we know it is all Amma's Grace.) Successful services to donate are things like: Airport Shuttle, Dinner for Two, Vacation Getaway, Airplane Tickets, Massage, Spa Entry, Healing Services, Dog Walking, Homemade Plantain Chips....
 
If everyone in the larger Amma Community donates one item or finds at least one donation. We will have the best auction ever. Everyone is encouraged to join in on this SEVA!
Thanks in Advance! As a team, it is beautiful fun! Questions? Visala 206-861-5917

  • Connect with businesses to see if they want to place an ad

Maltby Residence Property and Gardens Report
Garden
MA Center has owned the Maltby residence for over two years. During that time the residents and regional friends have followed Amma's direction to farm and preserve nature. With the help of sevites from near and far the gardens nearly doubled in size last year, and now include orchards with 40 fruit trees. All together there were are 100 different kinds of vegetables, fruits and herbs... and what happy plants, with all the love and care they received!
 
Composting also took off last year, after three gardeners from Seattle and Vancouver went to the 5-day Soil Food Web workshop in San Ramon, lead by Dr. Elaine Ingham. Several rounds of compost have been made, and this year compost tea will be brewed to spread on all the garden beds. In addition, 25 truck loads of wood chip mulch have been provided by a neighbor with a tree service business.
