The Greenhouse is Taking Shape!

We’re happy to report that our greenhouse project has evolved and is making great progress since we wrote last! Keeping the theme of “going local” we have partnered with Garden Resources of Washington to help us select a pre-fab greenhouse model, and we hope to have our decision finalized in the next few weeks. We have also secured a contractor to lay the foundation of the greenhouse, which will be the first step in the construction process.

After the foundation has been laid and the materials arrive on site, we’ll be working with a group of community volunteers in the spring to assemble the greenhouse in the Martha’s Table playground area – a wonderful addition to our already rich educational programming. Beyond a learning laboratory for our tots, the greenhouse will serve a production purpose to help us provide even more fresh, healthy and local choices through our food program.

Your support makes this important addition to our organization possible and will benefit those we serve for many years to come. Thank you!
