May There Be Gardens: a GRuB garden-building event!
Slow Food Greater Olympia is fundraising and sponsoring a team to help GRuB build 10 backyard gardens in one day!
On Saturday, May 5, GRuB will mobilize community members to install gardens and raise money to fund these food-producing, hunger-reducing backyard gardens.
As a team, we will raise enough funds to cover the bed we'll build together AND a second bed for another family. That means TWO FAMILIES will receive a garden bed because of your help.
^^Share the flyer above and help us spread the news about this event!
Slow Food will match all donations up to $500. We're asking our members and friends to join our team and help empower our neighbors.
When: Saturday, May 5 from 9 a.m. to about 1:30 p.m. Where: GRuB Farm, 2016 Elliott Avenue NW Teams will meet at GRuB, spend half the day at their building sites, and come back to GRuB for a celebration lunch!
>>NOW IS THE TIME TO GIVE AND SIGN UP!<<

Our favorite kind of party! Pot up heritage plants including some we're testing for potential inclusion in the Ark of Taste. Take home heritage starts including tomatoes, tomatillos, ground cherries, squash, herbs, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, peppers, and more in exchange for your help.
If you have them, bring pots, potting soil, and/or starts. We especially need pots and potting soil. You may want gloves and a towel to clean you hands when we finish the work. Non-gardeners are welcome!
