Seattle Tilth cultivates a healthy urban environment by teaching people about growing food organically, conserving natural resources, greening their lawns, and supporting local food systems. Adult classes expound on organic gardening, food preservation, and urban livestock, whereas youth programs tour organic gardens, demonstrate how to grow plants, and inspire young palates with taste tests of fresh vegetables.
Seattle Tilth also engages local residents in food production with its community kitchens and Seattle Youth Garden Works (SYGW) program. At the community kitchen, people collaborate by cooking, cleaning, and sharing a meal together. SYGW empowers underserved youth, some of whom face homelessness, with an opportunity to work on a farm and sell produce as a way to gain valuable job and social skills.

Family patriarch Nordy Rockler opened the doors of his first store in 1954 to supply his fellow craftsmen with knowledge, friendly advice, and a large selection of tools for at-home woodworking projects. Now, the chain of retail outlets brims with more than 20,000 tools and specialized woodworking equipment. Next to a steely rainbow of hinges, casters, and screws, a supply of lumber and exotic hardwoods provides planks for building tree houses or just leaving around as a warning to uncooperative trees. The tenor buzz of power tools operated by newly knowledgeable guests drifts from educational sessions on operating equipment and woodworking.
