Last weekend I was asked to donate my time for an amazing cause in the Redmond area. I had the opportunity to meet the founders of the Just Garden Project and work closely with one of their build sites at Einstein elementary school.
About 70 of us met at the Old Firehouse Teen Center in downtown Redmond. We all powered up with a donated breakfast from Whole Foods and broke into build teams. We grabbed some seeds and sprouts and our group hit the road.
After the introduction, the team began to build three raised garden beds while I took photos of the event. I was able to capture the entire day and watch the children have a great time!
About the Just Garden Project:
“To build food gardens for families in need and communities serving at risk populations throughout King County, Gardens help King County families experiencing hunger meet their basic needs by transforming their relationship with food—from consumer into producer, and from eating enough into eating well”
For any of you that may be interested, the Just Garden Project is always seeking volunteers. Contact info for the cause is below.
