The Clean Greens project is getting started again for 2009. There was an initial steering committee meeting on Tuesday, and the group will continue to meet on a regular basis. Top priorities include finding equipment to turn the soil on the farm in Duvall and preparing the land for planting. The farm will be working 7 acres of land again this year.
Last year’s crop was very popular and the organic greens sold quickly. Unfortunately a flood ended the season before the entire crop could be harvested. Clean Greens will be looking for volunteer gardeners to help with the planting day again this year. The produce will be sold at New Hope Church once the harvest begins. Last year, the mustard greens were a huge hit.
Local support for this effort is vital. From volunteering to buying organic produce, you can help bring affordable organic produce to our community.
