All funds raised through donations and memberships will help each farm or garden with operating expenses such as irrigation, soil supplements, supplies and equipment. They will also help in increasing the weekly donations of produce to the four local food banks: Port Townsend, Tri-Area, Quilcene and Brinnon.
Last year these gardens produced and donated 12,504 pounds of fresh, organically grown food and almost 35 dozen fresh, local chicken and duck eggs. In addition to the current 8 Food Bank Gardens, all funds raised will support other projects. This includes our Freeze Drying Project aimed at reducing food waste and building food security in cooperation with the Old Alcohol Plant. Our partnership with PeddlerPT is another project, begun last year, that we hope to be able to expand beginning this year. Added to that, we are working on expanding our winter gardening capacity by developing a new greenhouse production system. We thank you in advance for your generous donation and hope your can join us, not only through membership, but by joining in as a volunteer at any one of the Food Bank Farms and Gardens here in Jefferson County
As a result of the continuing pandemic, the need for fresh produce at area food banks has increased considerably and your support helps meet the need today as well as in the future.
