Who wants food?!!
10/12/2011 | Sheryl McGlochlin
I have a bunch of food for you today if you will come to Holladay!
Only garden members are invited to receive a share of the harvest from the greenhouse.
If you want to bring someone with you who is not a member, contact me first to let me know.
Garden members are invited to come once a week for a share, unless we have more food than people who want it. Check with me first if you want to come more than once a week. I want to give everyone a chance to receive food.
RSVP is required before coming. Contact me via text, email or phone message so I get an idea of how many are coming. 801-278-5313
You don't need to wait for a response from me.
Bring your own containers, bags, etc.
Come to my home, Holladay A Garden, same Holladay Distribution location as always
Enter the backyard, pass the boat and large trailer on the west side of the home.
Don't knock or ring my doorbell. Just go to the back.
In the backyard, stay close to the CONES which will take you to the entrance of the greenhouse.
The cones end where you enter the greenhouse.
Gently pull back the greenhouse fabric and enter the greenhouse
Sign the clipboard, located just inside the greenhouse.
Select your own produce from the boxes of harvest. I am restocking food daily.
There is a basket sitting next to the clipboard to give you an idea of how much food you may take.
Don't take the basket. It's just there as a visual.
If possible, take a variety of produce - not just one item.
Try to stay in the center isle as much as possible. If you need to step off the main isle, just be careful and know that lettuce seedlings and tomatoes are growing on each side of the main isle next to the dripline.
Do not step on or too close to the dripline.
We are trying hard to grow a fall garden inside the greenhouse right now so you'll have more food in 30 - 60 days from now!
About children in the greenhouse:
Unfortunately the greenhouse is not a "kid-friendly" place right now. If you bring children, make sure they stay with you in the main center isle or better yet, wait outside the greenhouse while you pick up produce.
Children (or anyone else) are not allowed to handle the produce.
I want children to see how we grow and care for food in the greenhouse but they are required to obey the same rules as everyone else.
Trampolines near the greenhouse can be a big temptation for children. Trampolines are off limits to everyone unless you are enrolled in my trampoline classes.
