Our quaint little business, headquartered in the rustic garden store you see pictured above, is far more than it appears to be. It brings a truly unique combination of wisdom, a long missing dimension of organic plant growing, and practical, environmentally compatible product offerings to share with people everywhere who are in search of the healthy, life-sustaining posture we put forth. Such living modes are emerging as the most sensible path for appreciative individuals, close-knit neighborhoods, and for safeguarding our planet home.
Becoming a Black Lake Organic Community Member integrates all of us into a rapidly growing, inter-acting community of heightened awareness and purpose. In addition, we offer a coupled action plan with the instructions, directional guidance and tools to get us all to a high level of greater food self sufficiency, security and satisfaction. As Member participants we also are bonded to an ever-strengthening and stabilizing force for the truly good life on into the distant future.
Initially, Community Membership entailed monthly newsletters, "bundles" with product discounts and access to a library of articles, garden leaflets, garden calendar, etc. The bundles turned out to be unworkable. Owning to the changed mode of BLO operation mentioned previously, monthly newsletters were ended. However, gardening articles and speeches by Gary Kline continue to be posted and articles and newsletters written in years previous are being updated and added to the information library for access to Community Members. In addition, BLO is entering into community outreach and educational activities in the South Sound area which membership fees help to enable.Articles: Black Lake Organic’s articles and announcements are written by BLO’s owner Gary Kline. The articles provide incredibly useful information pertaining to gardening activities, changes at the store, and new products and offerings. But most importantly they provide insight into the connection between soil fertility and the resulting beneficial health & nutrition effect for humans, animals and plants.
