BELLINGHAM – Common Threads will celebrate 10 years of working with kids in the community during their outdoor summer festival on Sunday, July 17. Founded in 2006 and based in Bellingham, Washington, Common Threads is a non-profit organization that promotes a “seed to table” approach to food production, good nutrition, and environmental stewardship.  Most of their programs take place on public school grounds, during the school day, in collaboration with classroom teachers and food service staff.  Additionally, Common Threads runs after-school and summertime gardening and cooking programs. The celebration will be from 3-9 p.m. at Aslan Brewing Co in Bellingham. There is a $5 suggested donation. Common Threads currently gardens, cooks, and eats with over 4,000 children annually and collaborates with teaching and food service staff in 17 schools.
