How to beat the heat: have a weeding party!

A weeding party to "beat the heat"? Doesn't that seem counter productive? No, as it turns out, not when it is 97 degrees outside, your offices are not air-conditioned, and the weeding can be done in the shade. This week Seattle has been having nearly record-breaking heat, but that didn't stop about a dozen Burke staff and board members from getting down and dirty in the Erna Gunther Ethnobotanical Garden for a weeding party. We made quite a lot of progress and actually had some fun in the process. The garden looks so much better now!
