May 6 - May There Be Beds - garden beds that is. Each year GRuB asks local organizations to help build garden beds in the backyards of local families and for community groups. This year the event is on Saturday May 6. Slow Food Greater Olympia has been doing so for 6 years. We rely on individual contributions to fund the cost of the beds and a few volunteers to work with GRuB youth and the family to build the beds. To volunteer, email Lorrain at firstname.lastname@example.org. Can't make it for the build? You can make a personal contribution with Slow Food Olympia matching the first $500. To make a personal contribution: Send your check, made out to GRuB, Lorrain Cornell 2103 Harrison Ave NW Suite 2-916 Olympia, WA 98502
Events help us sponsor delegates to Terra Madre Salone del Gusto, a biannual international conference in Turin, Italy dedicated to food and gastronomy. If you are interested in being a delegate, contact a Slow Food board member to get involved with fundraising!
