Blow Me Down Tree Farm at 33215 U.S. 2 in Sultan, next door to Barmon Lumber, may be a little ragged, but its heart is in the right place.
Cut any tree there for $20 and the proceeds go to the Sultan Food Bank.
Visit the farm from 9 a.m. to dusk until Christmas and make your choice. The trees aren’t pruned during the year, so you’ll have to eyeball the best choices. You can pick a really tall tree, also for only $20, that would go well in a bank lobby or church.
"No Net Loss," a film about salmon farming, will be shown at 7 p.m. Thursday at Langley United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall, 301 Anthes Ave., Langley. The movie, by Whidbey Islanders Mark Dworkin and Melissa Young, was filmed in Chile, Washington and British Columbia. The program is free.
"No Net Loss" looks at the risks and benefits of salmon farming, with government and industry spokesmen who make the case for salmon farming, and fishermen, scientists and consumers who explain possible dangers to marine life, wild salmon and coastal communities.
