Sometimes we just need to roll up our sleeves: and November 17 we’ll be sorting about 5000 donated veggie and herb seed packets for distribution this coming spring. The packets need to be organized and their flaps (which tend to come loose) taped or re-glued. Then they’ll be distributed to the Giving Gardens at the Spring Gather, to food banks and to food bank clients (either directly or through Northwest Harvest). If you’ve an interest in the seed distribution or for sprout distribution (in spring, 2019) do let us know by responding to this post.
We want to extend our deepest gratitude to Seattle gardeners for your support of the Sprouts project. Thanks to your response to our request we have achieved our goal and received a matching grant from the Seed Money organization.
If you wish to donate even now, we will be pleased. Funds are used for seed-starting mix, seeds, transplanting soil, and heating mats; additional funds are used to support the food bank giving gardens themselves with replacement wood for raised beds, repair of water systems, and purchase of small tools. https://donate.seedmoney.org/1682/seattles-giving-garden-network
