It’s time for GRuB’s Day of the Bed event! This is the 6th year that Greater Olympia’s Slow Food chapter has participated in the Day of the Bed. Our goal is to raise a minimum of $1,000.
The Day of the Bed is the culmination of GRuB’s Kitchen Garden Project annual spring build season. It’s a chance to make garden-building a public
event by recognizing and celebrating the elements that go into creating a sustainable and secure community food system.
We are collecting contributions until May 17th. Slow Food Greater Olympia will match every dollar contributed by individual members and
supporters up to $500. So your tax-deductible contribution goes twice as far in support of building kitchen gardens in our community.
How to participate: Donate now! or, Join the Slow Food team on Saturday, May 17 from 9 am to 2 pm.
Please send your check – made payable to “GRuB” to:
4223 Indian Pipe Loop NW
Olympia, WA 98505
Or call Emily at (206) 491-3680 to arrange pick-up.

Commitment: 9am-2pm. Arrive at GRuB at 9am in work clothes with a potluck dish for the celebration following the event. Work at the build site from 10am-12pm. At 12:30pm, meet back at GRuB for a potluck lunch celebration!
GRuB’s Kitchen Garden Project partners with organizations and people with low incomes to create backyard and neighborhood food solutions. They connect people with the sustainable food movement by providing access to the knowledge and resources needed to grow fresh, healthy, and culturally-appropriate foods. With your help, they can reach their goal of building 60 beds in 2014!
