Our Wish List!
Every now and then we find we need to reach out and let you know we need your help! Our farmlet is in its 3rd year of growing and providing a learning space for the children and families served by William Byrd Community House. One of our goals is not only to make the community garden, farmlet and market look better, but to make each of them work better every year. This year you can help us keep that forward momentum going by
professional produce scale (value: $100-200) – to weigh the harvest so we know how much is grown and packaged for distribution through our food pantry to neighbors in need.
refrigerator (value: $100-300) – to store the harvest before distribution through our food pantry
market umbrellas (value: $35-50 each) – to shade you as you enjoy the fruits of your market day (7.5-8′ diameter, colors: rainbow, bright blue or yellow)
