Here’s a wonderful idea! Too many tomatoes? Tired of chard? Why not share your extra produce with the Hillside Produce Cooperative at this free, local, organic food exchange!
Saturday FEB 19, 2011
From Hillside Produce Cooperative:
If you would like to participate in THIS SATURDAY’S exchange:
Send and email to: firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday, February 17th at NOON. In this email please include:
*what you’ll be bringing fruit, vegetable, herb, flower, and other interesting food-related- contribution- wise (mmm…baked- goods, honey, booze, etc)
* if you would like to volunteer to BAG – also known as sorting, counting, and redistributing everyone’s incredible food contributions so that each participant gets the same thing. BAGGING happens at 12:30 on SATURDAY, FEB 19TH and lasts about an hour and a half.
* if you would like to volunteer to DELIVER some of the bags. Delivery volunteers pick up their few deliveries at 2:30 on SATURDAY, FEB 19TH – it’s a great way to participate if you aren’t growing anything at the moment.
* If you would like a local Northeast Los Angeles (only) delivery
or if you will be picking up your own bag at 2:30 on Saturday. If you live out of our area (our area = Glassell Park, Mt Washington, Eagle Rock, Silver Lake, Cypress Park, Los Feliz, Atwater Village, Echo park, Highland Park, and immediate environs), you can still participate with us, but you must pick up your own bag (we LOVE people who pick up their own bags!)
* If you do need a delivery, please let me know your Northeast LA address along with any special instructions.
The dropping off of food contributions will be absolutely any time BEFORE NOON on Saturday morning. (That is: from pre-dawn hours to NOON O’CLOCK on Saturday, February 19th – just to give you a nice big window of time.) Address available after you email.
The Hillside Produce Cooperative is a free neighborhood monthly exchange of all the FRUITS, VEGETABLES, HERBS and FLOWERS we grow in our yards; a collective in which we all get to enjoy some of what everyone grows in exchange for contributing what we don’t want or won’t use ourselves. Then no food is wasted and we all get a variety of fresh local produce to eat for FREE.
