Help Today And Saturday Build Rooftop Garden For Food Bank

Several neighbors submitted this information to share with the community about a family friendly event helping the Food Bank at nearby Center For Urban Horticulture Center, near the area marked UW Farm.

LCC said:
This is such a terrific organization! The location to help is right at the Horticulture Center.  So it's  very convenient for Laurelhurst neighbors to "lend a hand".

 Here is the information:


In only one week’s time, 4000 milk crates will be hoisted onto the roof top of our new food bank home where they will begin growing fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs for our many food bank customers.

Before this can happen, we need to finish getting the milk crates prepped. To do this, we need your help.
Please join us for one of our upcoming work parties:
Wednesday, April 27th from 4pm - 8pm
Saturday, April 30th
from 9am - noon
Saturday, April 30th
from noon – 3:00pm
Wear comfortable and weather appropriate clothes because we will be outside, rain or shine and bring work gloves if you have them. You don’t need to bring any tools, we have what you need. And we’ll have some drinks and snacks too.
Please RSVP so we know to expect you.  Once it’s all done, this is going to be a pretty cool garden.
Thanks for lending a hand.  A few hours of your time will make a tremendous difference.  Many hands make for light work.
