We will be holding the above mentioned event in partnership with Food Not Bombs, Cultivating Roots, and Activism in Action. Bring your mask and work gloves and meet us at 357 Oak Street Aberdeen, WA 98520 this Saturday, Oct 17 from 12PM to 2PM.
We are holding this event in order to drum up some interest in these local mutual aid projects as well as to bring people together to meet and talk about other projects in need of starting, current needs, future events, and anything else that we feel needs addressed. Please consider joining us here or online to get involved in whatever capacity you can.
They would also like help installing a free pantry located at the garden. They will be working with FNB to ensure that the garden is producing as much food for as many people as possible.
***UPDATE*** Will be aiming to turn over the remaining garden beds and planting a winter cover crop of fava beans. A few beds are still in need of repair, and this time we hope to get more of the housing community members to come out and join.
Will be tabling some tasty vegan food made with ingredients from the garden, as well as looking to recruit some volunteers for future organizing and actions. (think community fridges, free pantries, etc). They will also be accepting donations of any food products AIA cannot make use of such as fresh produce.
***UPDATE 10/17*** FNB is calling all artists to come and help make their banner, they have a new blog post all about the next steps for making a Food Not Bombs group.
Is and has been working closely with many mutual aid groups in the PNW region to bring supplies to people affected by COVID-19, wildfires, and capitalism generally.
***UPDATE 10/17*** They will be collecting weekly for continuous deliveries throughout the region and locally at least until the end of the year. Please follow them on Facebook and check below for a current needs list from Fire Igniting the Spirit, Snack Bloc PDX and Symbiosis PDX.
