Promoting Sustainability in East Jefferson County, WA
While you are busy, planting, weeding, and harvesting, in your personal or community gardens, please remember our neighbors in need. The Jefferson County Food Banks, a completely volunteer driven organization, relies on donations of fresh produce to provide food bank clients with adequate nutrition. As the growing season gets underway, please consider sharing the harvest, and donating fresh, locally grown food to Jefferson County Food Banks.
There are three dedicated food bank gardens in Port Townsend. Volunteers are needed. Details HERE.
