If it seems like the Poulsbo/North Kitsap Rotary gets a lot of editorial column ink, we assure you, it’s very well deserved.

It still is.

POULSBO — Think of it as a latte stand for your garden. But please, don’t drink it yourself. This month, Poulsbo’s Valley Nursery installed a SoilSoup dispenser at its Bond Road location. New on the market this spring, the units allow people to “brew” a gallon of beneficial compost tea at the touch of a button.
POULSBO — Last week, the 125-foot Island Spirit made waves in town when it dropped anchor at the Poulsbo Marina for the day. This week was no different.
