If you follow Little Hands Can on social media, you've likely seen the cute pictures from our recent event with the Positive Community Kitchen where we helped with yard work in their garden. If you aren't already, be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram so you don't miss cute pictures like this:
Anyway, if you missed the event, but still want to get involved, you can! And here's how:
Service Project: Donate produce from your garden to the Positive Community Kitchen
Prep time: however long you want to spend gardening
Cost: Water, dirt and sunshine!
Duration: all summer long!
Lesson(s) learned: I can plant and grow veggies to help my family and help others!
The Positive Community Kitchen is a local Eugene organization that prepares organic healing meals for community members fighting a life threatening illness.
At the end of the activity we had with them last week, we each went home with plants to grow and a pledge card where we promised to donate half of the produce we raised back to them. We had fun planting and are excited to see what we produce. We're excited to give back to them at the end of the summer.
Though the plants they had to give out have all been claimed, they still have seeds you can pick up at their office. Additionally, you can plant your own seeds or starts and donate your excess to them. You can bring it to their office or call and they'll come pick it up from your house (in Eugene area). So instead of letting your extra tomatoes rot at the end of the summer, do something good with them! Call (541) 249-4942 to schedule a pick up time with their office.
Let us know in the comments if you end up donating. We'd love to hear about your experience
