Just GardenBuilds gardens for low income families, and helps educate a new group of gardeners. We had an encouraging relaunch party in December and we’re looking for a spark of energy. If you are willing to support the project through your time/energy, financial contribution, and/or your network/connections by hosting a Just Garden Fundraising Dinner or “Just Dinner”, please contact Stephanie. We have lists of people that can really use help setting up gardens for their families and communities and your support is key.
Just Garden Bucket Garden Build- March 3rd
We will bring food grade buckets (yours gladly accepted), soil, and plants and seeds. Donations will be requested. Suggested $10 each bucket. If you can, pay $20 to help us give away one for free. *Location is TBD*: This will be in SOUTH Seattle. Zip Codes 98118 or 98144, Hoping for Collaboratory, Rainier Beach Urban Farm or High School. Contact us if you want to help with logistics, have copious amounts of food grade buckets, or want to host/collaborate on one in North Seattle.
Teams hustle around a neighborhood with pick axes, shovels, and sod cutters to cut and roll up sod. Homeowners can make a tax deductible donation to Just Garden teams, suggested $0.30/square foot + a show up fee.. We only cut an roll up the Sod at the time. It would take us into the following week to pick up and dump sod (additional fees would apply). Let us know if you want to sign up a team. We will provide a coach/lead, and find the clients with lawns. You just need to support the cause with your labor. Contact Michael if you want to participate in any form. Thank you to Cascadia Edible Landscapes and eatyouryard.com for helping coordinate things.
