We added 2 dates to our calendar event to get everyone prepared for both the gardening and gleaning projects.
Garden Planting Party- May 8th- 1-3pm at the Community Action Building- Come to Community Action and help us plan and start our apple bin demonstration garden for the season. You will get a hands-on opportunity to learn the basics of square foot gardening and help to prepare the garden that brought 700lbs of fresh produce to the food bank last season. Feel free to drop in if you would like to contribute any ideas to inspire vegetable gardening throughout the Okanogan community!
