Sponsor a Senior

In 2017, GRuB distributed over 840 pounds of food to seniors with low incomes through our new Senior CSA program.  Every week for ten weeks this summer, we brought our GRuB-grown produce to the Senior Services for the South Sound in downtown Olympia. Twenty seniors took part in our pilot program, and they loved it! We want to continue offering this program in 2018, and we need your help! (…read more…)

Introducing the Victory Garden Project!

By Katie Rains

After building nearly 3,000 gardens throughout the South Puget Sound over the past 20+years, I reckon most of you know a thing or two about the Kitchen Garden Project.  We partner with individuals, families, tribes, schools, organizations and businesses to build gardens so that our community can dig in together and grow good food.  Over the years, we’ve been asked hundreds of times, why don’t you use a screw gun to put these raised bed boxes together?  Couldn’t this be done more efficiently?
