Most classes get a couple of chances to harvest greens for the food bank during their garden class time. This is another activity that reinforces our social justice focus at Orca. This can also help take the cultural stigma out of poverty & the fact that some folks need help sometimes. We have an amazing relationship with the Rainier Valley Food Bank that involves canned & packaged food donations and our incredible greens & produce also.
Greens love this cold weather and our garden is still pumping out rainbow chard, dino kale, russian red kale, and collards.
