Foodbank Farm

Part of this project is a Foodbank Farm to benefit the Everett Food Bank and the 28 other foodbanks in Snohomish County that are affiliated. "Food to help our hungry neighbors." When the whole 10 acres are developed, 4 of those will be used to grow fresh 'nutrition-intensive' food for the more economically challenged among us.

I spent 4 hours today rototilling areas for carrots, bush beans and potatoes. We also have a few starts (peppers, tomatoes, etc) that have been given to the Foodbank. We will also make as large a planting as we can of kale so that we will have good food throughout the winter and into next spring.

Any seeds you might wish to donate would be much appreciated.
