Tacoma March Photo Challenge

March Tacoma Photos

Tacoma Photo Challenge

Happy almost spring Tacoma friends. Why not take the opportunity to get outside and explore your city? Shake off that winter gloom and be a tourist in your own town.

Make this photo challenge count. We’re raising funds for one of favorite Tacoma gems: Hilltop Urban Gardens. Have you heard of them? Hilltop Urban Gardens is a community garden and they make food available to those who need it. They are a wonderful local organization.

So, for every new Instagram account (we’ll include Facebook and Twitter if we can find your posts) that posts Tacoma local photos to the #Tacomaphotochallenge hashtag, we will donate one dollar to Hilltop Urban Gardens (HUG for short) and for every account that completes the 31 day photo challenge using our #Tacomaphotochallenge (31 days of photos, you must include some Tacoma shots, and you must stick to the daily challenge theme) The Urban Gardener will donate twenty dollars to HUG. Together, we could raise up to five hundred dollars (we have to cap it, we’re only a teeny micro business). Photo challenge ends on March 31st.

You can still donate on your own to this link: Hilltop Urban Gardens

Help us celebrate Urban Gardens in Tacoma.

New Favorite Little Free Library

We’re so lucky to be in an area that embraces the Little Free Libraries. This sweet example comes from Dan and Trina Wiswell in Tacoma, Washington. Dan is crafty and creative with his building skills and he built this Library to reflect Trina’s love for Micky Mouse. Check out some of these details:

Little Free Library, Tacoma, WA

The fairy door on the planter inspired the shape of the library door.

Can you find Micky?

This Little Free Library is so sweet. The colors are inspired by the owner’s love for Micky Mouse.

Tacoma, Free Library Visitors

Tacoma, Free Library. Visitors from around the world.

Books for all ages.

Packed with books for all ages. This Little Free Library is located in Tacoma. #43296

Fairy Door

The hidden Fairy door that inspired the design.

Thanks again to my friends Dan and Trina. They crafted this Free Library and placed it in-front of their house after a neighbor kid was hit by a car accessing the Free Library just down the block. These are great folks and I hope you get a chance to check out their beautiful creation. The Library’s number is #43296.
