This event is open to all food banks, churches, and non profit groups who serve the community around issues of food scarcity or food insecurity.  If you’re interested, please email us at firstlightfarm@earthlink.net or call us at 206-719-8602 to let us know you’re coming and who you will be gleaning for. Some of what will be available be available for harvest: beets, collards, Asian greens, swiss chard, kale, turnips, cabbage, winter squash, and pumpkins. You’ll need to wear appropriate clothes for fall weather (consider rain), gloves, boots, and bring containers for your harvest. We’ll be able to help some, but please know we will be very busy dismantling the farm for winter preparing for flood season. Please share if you know someone or a group that would be interested. Questions: contact Farmer Jane at firstlightfarm@earthlink.net
