Free Class Round-Up

July 17, 2013

Most parents worry about their kids not learning anything during the summer recess and forgetting everything they learned during the previous school year, but do they ever stop to think about themselves? When was the last time they learned something new other than, say, what not to do at work, how to keep their head down and what not say in front of the boss? 

Sometimes the problem is that classes are just too expensive. Other times they just aren’t convenient because they meet for weeks and we can’t all guarantee we’ll have the same night off every week. 

That’s why today’s round-up of free classes is so great. Not only don’t they cost anything, but they’re also one night classes, so there’s no on-going commitment. 

Gentle Yoga–Don’t look now, but you only have about 10 minutes to get to this one. It’s at 11:30 to 12:30 at the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall Lawn just north of the International Fountain. The good news is that it’s offered every Wednesday through August 21st. The class is led by Terri Dyer of Home Yoga and Wellness Center. 

Find Your Next Healthy Meal at the Grocery Store–The name of this class of course begs the question, “Where else would you expect to find you next healthy meal?” An auto parts store? A computer reseller? Radio Shack? This is at 3 p.m. today (July 17th) at the Bothell QFC, 18921 Bothell Way NE, Bothell. Advance registration required with the King County Library System (425) 486-7811.

Composting for Apartment Dwellers–If you have limited space in your living quarters, but still want to recycle your food waste and turn it into compost, this class will show you how to build a worm bin from simple stuff that will still work indoors. It runs from 5:30 to 7 p.m. tonight at Victor Steinbrueck Park. The Seattle-Tilth run class is free, but registration is required.

Our Food, Our Right, Recipes for Justice–The Community Alliance for Global Justice gathers to talk food politics and the book of the same name tonight at 7 p.m. at the Skyway branch of the King County Library.

SUP (Stand Up Paddelboarding Basics)–Get on board the sports trend that combines surfing and ….kayaking? 7 p.m. tonight at the Redmond REI. There may be plenty of spots left right now, but it never hurts to register just in case.
