Soil temperatures are rising, flowers bulbs are popping out of the ground, and the sun is starting to make its presence again here in the Pacific Northwest. All signs that spring is here! As we eagerly anticipate the growing season we would like all of you to know about the new partnership that has grown during the winter months between Snohomish Conservation District’s Lawns to Lettuce program, and Volunteers of America’s, Project Harvest. We have come together to keep our gleaning and gardening communities engaged and informed!
In combining these worlds, we will be producing a separate monthly newsletter to serve as a tool to connect Lawns to Lettuce fans and Project Harvest gleaners with volunteer opportunities, incentives, gardening tips and tricks, and upcoming events. Sign up for the Lawns to Lettuce e-news. Also, we have begun a new Facebook group to connect the Project Harvest folks with our Lawns to Lettuce fans. Join the Lawns to Lettuce group to trade gardening tips and learn about gleaning events.
And, in order to engage individual gardeners, we have our Plant A Row program so you can donate your extra produce to the local banks.
We hope you'll follow along on our journey through the growing season!
