It's Autumn/Fall, and edging into Winter, time for putting gardens to bed and planting winter crops. usually a time of harvest and gathering... At least we can harvest!
Great news: we applied to and have received a generous grant from the Jefferson Community Foundation! They have covered our estimated cost for the new ventilation system! Phil and Doug are working on attic access in anticipation of installation.
The new extended coverage for our Food Bank garden work area provides shelter for our wonderful volunteers to safely process the harvest.
There will be two work parties for both the Garden and Grange landscaping on Sat. Nov 7th and Sat. Nov. 14th, 9:00-#;00. Please contact Barbara Tusting (firstname.lastname@example.org 360 531 1595) to volunteer. Barbara will be overseeing the work parties to ensure safe distancing and masking.
Can anyone provide treats for the work parties? They would be most welcome. Let Barbara know (see above).
We appreciate any donations to help us keep going. Please mail checks/money orders to Quimper Grange 1219 Corona St PT WA 98368.
Stay safe and hope to see you all in the future!
