Food grown organically and sustainably in the garden will be donated to the White Center Food Bank. Read more about the project on the SWS website; if you haven’t been by yet, head for 8th/Henderson; they’re scheduled to continue till 5, and the more help they have, the more they can get done.
ADDED: We went back around 4:40 pm to see something close to the “after” photo:
Now – it’s time to grow!
