It’s spring…. time to build a garden with major financial help from 13 local generous women. The Women Who Care Giving Circle has granted the Chimacum Corner Farmstand with $10,500 seed money to establish an educational program, with demonstration herb garden and greenhouse at the site. Wendie Dyson has been hired as the coordinator for the project, which will run spring through late fall of this year. She is planning a number of events and workshops throughout the season, including:
Joining with local schools, civic organizations and the Grange, it is our intention to strengthen the link between agriculture and education. Many thanks to the visionary women of the Giving Circle for this opportunity to invest in the health of local agriculture and community.
