7/29/2011 | Sheryl McGlochlin
Main Harvest Hub: Holladay A Garden - 5 - 5:30 pm
2836 E Casto Lane (5060 So.)
Main Harvest Hub: Taylorsville Garden- 6 - 6:30 pm
6255 So. 1300 W. (in the church parking lot on 1300 W.)
A Runner will be needed for the following locations:
3300 So., South Jordan, Riverton, West Jordan A, and West Valley B Gardens
Those who would like some harvest but would like to stay in these gardens are asked to come a little early. Pick any crops that may need to be harvested.
If there is more than one garden member who shows up at your garden, designate a runner, who would be willing to bring the harvest to our main Holladay OR Taylorsville Harvest Hub and deliver it to Sheryl.
In return, a greater assortment of harvest and food will then quickly be re-distributed and prepared for all eagerly awaiting garden members and the runner will quickly get back to their own garden to distribute the goodies!
Designate someone who can be QUICK! No stops should be made along the way - to or from.
Notice the Taylorsville and Holladay Harvest times above. The runner needs to arrive at the beginning of the harvest distribution.
While garden members are waiting for food to come back, any weeding they could do would be very helpful, productive and GREATLY appreciated!
RSVP IS required to receive a share of the harvest.
Call, email or text Sheryl by 4:30 pm on the day of harvest.
State which garden you will attend.
Those who don't RSVP or come during designated time, will need to wait until next time.
Food & Harvest:
Baked Goods i.e sweets
NOTE: No sprays/pesticides are used on crops unless stated otherwise
Current harvest is distributed every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
Generally it takes place in the early evening, so watch the daily blog.
Distribution may extend to more days as the harvest increases
Food and Harvest will vary depending on what is available on that day
If you work in any of the gardens on another day or time and would like a share of the harvest and aren't able to attend in the evenings, email me so I can put you in touch with other members in your area.
You will be responsible for picking up food from them in a timely manner.
You still need to RSVP.
