SGGN’s committed Ballard Sprouts volunteers grew and distributed more than 22,000 vegetable starts to Giving Gardens, Food Bank clients and kitchen gardens. An experienced and passionate gardener is requesting seeds for distribution to the Giving Gardens and food banks in 2022. Giving Gardeners were reimbursed their expenses for tools and rabbit fences. Despite the best efforts of local rabbits, the Giving Gardeners themselves are continuing to harvest TONS of produce for food banks. It’s joyful work, outdoors — please consider your own opportunities to help out in 2022’s spring.
Here’s a link to the schedule of classes and registration and to resource information. They’re dividing the classes into three presentations: brassicas and other greens, peas & beans, & warmer weather crops like tomatos, eggplant and cukes.
The city’s list serve sent information about the location for distribution. Happy Gardening!
