It’s that time again, and I’m super excited to invite you to our third fabulous exchange providing FREE, local, home-grown, home-made food!
The May Exchange is taking place THIS Saturday May 7th, 2011.
If you would like to participate in THIS SATURDAY’S exchange, the first thing you need to do is SEND ME AN EMAIL BY THURSDAY, MAY 5TH BY 3:00 P.M. (so I’ll have time to organize the logistics and send the final details email on Friday morning.)
In your email reply, please let me know:
What you’ll be contributing, i.e., fruit, vegetable, herb, flower, or other interesting food-related-contribution, yummy baked goods, etc;
If you would like to volunteer to be a BAGGER – also known as sorting, counting, and redistributing the incredible food contributions so that each participant gets the same thing. BAGGING PROMPTLY starts at 12:15 on SATURDAY, MAY 7TH and lasts about an hour or so.
EVERYONE WILL BE IN CHARGE OF PICKING UP THEIR OWN BAGS UNLESS OTHERWISE MENTIONED. However, if you would like to volunteer to DELIVER bags to members in your own neighborhood, just say so!
Everyone, including delivery volunteers, must pick up their bags between 2:00-3:30 on SATURDAY, MAY 7TH.
Get your neighbors involved as members to create small groups so that drop-off’s, pick-ups and deliveries can be Easy, Smooth & Peaceful!! Either provide their names/contributions or have them become a member by emailing me! 🙂
If you are volunteering to deliver to a group, please let me know so I can pull the group bags aside for you.
The exchange will be held at my house in Long Beach, 90815 (address will be sent to all confirmed participants on Friday, May 6th, along with final details – including a final count of participants for those of you who might be baking!
The dropping off of all contributions at my house will be absolutely any time BEFORE NOON on Saturday morning. (That is, from pre-dawn hours to NOON O’CLOCK on Saturday, May 7th – just to give you a nice big window of time.) Please mark your contributions and reuseable bags clearly with your name.
So… WHO’S IN for our 3rd Exchange of fresh FREE Garden Goodies?!?
Please feel FREE to forward this invite on to your friends, family and neighbors who may be interested in giving and receiving bountiful gifts through the kind and open hearts of Garden Angels.
