Windermere Community Service Day

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.
