BACKYARD HARVEST

This is a guest post from Amy Grey, Director of Backyard Harvest.

The soil has been turned, peas are planted, and Molly survived a very soggy Farmer's Market on Saturday—our fifth season is well underway!

We will need your participation to make it our best year ever. Here are some ways to help out for the month of May:

Moscow Farmers Market | Molly needs help on Saturday mornings to manage Backyard Harvest's market booth. Sign up for an 7–10am or 10–1pm shift by contacting Molly at market@backyardharvest.org.

Market Drop-off Bin | This year we will also have a bin to accept produce donations at both the Co-op's Tuesday Growers Market and the Moscow Farmers Market.
So buy a little extra from your favorite local vendor or bring your surplus garden produce to drop in the bin.

Plant an Extra Row (or Two or Three) | Expand your garden this spring for donation to Backyard Harvest later this summer. We will have free seeds available at our booths at the Moscow Farmers Market and Tuesday Growers Market during the first few weeks in May. Later in June we will also have free plant starts for distribution to those willing to grow extra for our neighbors in need.

Adopt a Garden | We are looking for dedicated volunteers to help us maintain any one of several Backyard Harvest plots located in Moscow and Pullman. Contact Isaak at isaak@backyardharvest.org for a current list of gardens and needs.

Spring Cleaning? | Backyard Harvest is always looking for garden tools in good condition to help with our growing efforts. Contact Isaak at isaak@backyardharvest.org.

As always thanks for all of your help and support . . . we could not do it without you!
