It’s that time of year again- where we start laying mulch over the garden. It’ll protect the soil from the upcoming harsh winter. Fortunately though, many beds are still producing greens and veggies and can’t be mulched yet. We will have a lot to harvest for our Harvest Festival next week!

Continuing our quest for tangible social action and meaningful interaction with our local community, we are having a massive year long food drive here at Orca. A CAN, A KID, A MONTH! We have developed a powerful relationship with Rainier Valley Food Bank- they are a vital food security link in our neighborhood. This should generate more food and awareness for them. It’s also student lead and run! every student is encouraged to bring one can or package a month. We have 250 already! Our goal is 5,000 pieces for the year! Once the garden starts rolling next spring, the fresh veggies can start again too.
