On June 11th, my office spent our annual Windermere Community Service Day with the Snohomish Garden Club constructing trellises, weeding and staking beds, and planting and labeling a half-acre of produce! We also assembled a pole shed, built out a composting area and a rock bench on the property for the Garden Club to use throughout the year. The Snohomish Garden Club will harvest the half-acre, which will yield close to 10,000 pounds of fresh produce to be donated to local food banks in Snohomish County.
My office is also conducting a Food Drive in the month of July via The Windermere Foundation, in tandem with this planting project with a goal to donate $5,000 to the Volunteers of America Food Banks across Snohomish County. You can donate to our GoFundMe, or let me know if you would like to make a food donation and I will be happy to pick it up from you. I’m doing my part to collect for our own Ferndale Food Bank- see below!
Windermere’s Community Service Day was established in 1984 to offer agents and staff a chance to volunteer a workday to give back to the neighborhoods in which they live and work.
