Last week was a very busy week in our garden with lots to do. Fortunately the community really stepped up to help us out. On Thursday 12 youth members lead by Whitney Lynch from the Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation organization came out to help. They did a great job and ask a lot of questions about plants and food. We hope all these kids will benefit from the experience.
On Friday 20 students from Pacific University's Pharmacy School helped out in the garden for their annual volunteer event. This is the second year they have volunteered at the garden. Thank you to the pharmacy school students for all of your help. We got a lot of work done that day and TVG would also like to thank you for your generous financial donation of $200.
Saturday was also a big day for community volunteerism as many other volunteers came out to support local organizations. Saturday's volunteers came out as part of the Portland Timbers “Stand Together” week and to support their favorite Timber Andrew Jean-Baptiste who also volunteered his time in the garden. This is also the second year that the Timbers have come the garden for their annual event.
TVG sends out a very special thank you to Hands On Greater Portland for organizing not only the Timber's event, but for making community volunteerism really cool.
