PPMCC’s Do Unto Others will again be supporting the Westside Cares Garden Bed Building Project on Saturday Oct. 13. As you might notice, we’ve shifted deliveries to the fall, to try to avoid the spring snows that have wreaked havoc on projects in April. The beds allow low-income families on the Westside to grow healthy, organic fruits and vegetables right in their own back yards, whether they are homeowners or renters.
Interested volunteers can sign up at the back of the church sanctuary to shovel and/or haul soil and alpaca “beans” for the beds. Please let us know if you have or can borrow a truck or trailer, and what size. Wheelbarrows, shovels and rakes are also needed. We need the truck drivers to be ready about 8:30 a.m. to pick up loads in Black Forest and the shovel-ers to be at the garden sites by about 9:30 a.m.
If you cannot participate in the group event on Oct. 13, some deliveries might be able to be made on a weekday. Please talk to Trudy Welsh if you have questions or want to offer a truck or equipment.
