Community Harvest also successfully hosted A Place at the Table, a powerful film exploring hunger and food insecurity in America. Over 100 people purchased tickets to the film! If you missed it you can rent it on iTunes here.
We also celebrated all our wonderful volunteers and supporters (aka YOU) at our Community Harvest Volunteer Kick-Off and Earth Day Celebration! A delicious pot luck, Señor Cluck, and good people- what more could you ask for?!?

Community Harvest just confirmed the opportunity for a screening of the new film, A Place at the Table, at Liberty Theater, but the screening, powered by tugg, will only happen if 75 people purchase tickets online here before April 25th!
Attending the screening will be a one-time opportunity to engage with Hunger in the U.S. & learn more about anti-hunger efforts in Chelan & Douglas counties. As an added bonus, Community Harvest will receive a portion of the ticket sales! Also, those who attend the event will automatically be entered to win a 1 month FREE share of Farmhouse Table’s 2013 CSA- an $88 value!
Please buy your ticket TODAY as this event will not take place if 75 people do not reserve their tickets online before the deadline. (And don’t worry, if you reserve your ticket and the movie is cancelled, you will receive a full refund.)
Support Community Harvest and watch a fabulous film at the same time. Get some friends together and make it a socially just evening that will expand your horizons! Can’t attend yourself, but want to support Community Harvest? Buy a ticket and give it to a friend.
This great film can come to Wenatchee, but only if YOU make it happen!
Last week Community Harvest partnered with the Salvation Army Youth Club and Intermountain Americorps to do some old-fashioned seed saving. The carrot seeds, donated on the umbrel by Cloudview Ecofarms, will be given out to food bank clients and backyard gardeners as part of this year’s Plant a Row for the Hungry initiative!
We were having so much fun we even had some curious park-goers come over and help us out for a bit.
Have extra space in your garden and want to help get more fresh food into your local food bank? Come by our office at 10 N. Mission St. to pick up seeds and start participating!
Join other Community Harvest volunteers and supporters as we celebrate and get ready for the upcoming growing season!
The Kick-Off will be a great opportunity to meet other volunteers, learn more about gleaning and produce handling best practices, and get all the pesky paperwork for the entire season over with at one time. As an added perk we will get to do some seed saving of carrot seeds donated to Community Harvest, still on the umbrel, by Cloudview Ecofarms! Once cleaned and collected, these seeds can be distributed throughout NCW for the Plant a Row for the Hungry initiative.
Meet at the Community Farm Connection office at 10 N. Mission St., Wenatchee, WA 98801 on Monday, April 22nd between 5:30pm and 7:00pm. And don’t forget to bring an item to share for the kick-off POTLUCK!
Interested in growing your own food even though you don’t have your own garden?
Join WVC College of Agriculture and Community Harvest for a free, hands-on workshop on GARDENING IN THE KITCHEN taught by Eron Drew, local Tierra Garden Organics farmer & Master Gardener! The workshop will take place on Monday, April 15th from 5:30pm-6:30pm in the Wenatchee Valley College Greenhouse located at 8000 Batjer Hall, 9th St., Wenatchee, WA 98801.
This workshop is the first in a series called “Your Garden, Your Food” encouraging people to be self empowered in their food choices. Upcoming workshops will focus on topics such as proper harvesting and different food preservation techniques.
