FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Fourth Annual Spring into Bed is Transforming the High Point Neighborhood

Feb 28, 2013

On Saturday, March 23, the Just Garden Project will bring people together in West Just Garden CrewSeattle’s High Point Neighborhood to build 17 food gardens for community members with limited financial resources during the fourth annual Spring Into Bed garden building event. Volunteers are needed to assemble garden beds in fourteen backyards and three large Seattle Housing Authority community centers.

The Just Garden Project is a program of Seattle Tilth that works to build a just food system and culture of gardening for all people by building food gardens for families with low-incomes and educating gardeners. These gardens empower families to become self-sufficient, grow their own food and make healthier food choices.

Sara Sausner, a 2011 garden recipient, explains the impact of a Just Garden, “The excitement of watching the garden grow, harvesting and sharing… is fulfilling and has added a richness to our lives that was unexpected. This cycle of health and giving all stems from simply planting a seed. 

What: Spring into Bed!
Where: Meet at Neighborhood House, 6400 Sylvan Way SW, Seattle
When: Saturday, March 23rd; garden building 10 a.m.-2 p.m., celebration 2-5 p.m.

Sign up to volunteer: food@justgarden.org
More info: springintobed.org or on Facebook

Spring into Bed is a celebration of community and growing food and cannot be done alone. Join over 100 volunteers in community and backyard gardens to break ground and celebrate with food, fun and games. This year we will be celebrating a second Spring into Bed in Redmond on May 18. Sign-up to volunteer, donate to support the program and find out more at springintobed.org.
