garden’s first year, potatoes were the sole crop. This year, however, the Food
Bank Garden has expanded its crop variety to include a long list of vegetables.
Today in the garden you will find lettuce, spinach, beets, squash, broccoli,
tomatoes, carrots and a few herbs such as cilantro, basil and rosemary. Generous
donators even contributed sunflowers, marigolds and cosmos!
On May 18th,
2013, 20 volunteers made up of Ecology staff, as well as students from high
school and The Evergreen State College, volunteered in the rain to plant
potatoes and tomatoes for the season. With
so many helping hands we even laid down irrigation for the summer season.
Anyone interested in volunteering in the garden either during the week or on weekends,
contact Mari Novak @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
