It really is about quality. A tomato grown from nutrient-dense soil,fresh-picked and warmed from the late-summer sun — there’s nothing like it.
The people of Slow Food Spokane River know this as well as anyone. They’ve dedicated their gardening careers to the encouragement of locally grown food. They’re currently prepping their “2nd Chance Kitchen &Garden Sale,” a fundraiser to be held on Saturday, March 6, from 9 am-3pm. Right now, they’re seeking donations of not-totally-beat-up utensils for growing, preparing and serving food.
Your donation will go to slow-food projects around our area. Last year’s fundraiser provided a scholarship to a slow-food workshop for youth — which means that’s one less unfortunate soul never to have tasted a tomato straight from the vine. Bring your donations to Peters &Sons Flowers and Gifts, 512 E. Pacific Ave. Call 209-2851.
