GETTING THE COMMUNITY INVOLVED: The Washing Station

Yes, there is a new washing station out at the garden, thanks to a generous donation from Andy Rulofson, Boy Scout Troop # 17, an ambitious young man who, in build- ing this station, merited the rank of Eagle Scout. All labor, time and materials were donated, and, as the picture reveals, this is a well-appointed wash station. Under a protective roofed structure, made from high-grade, pressure-treated lumber, it features a stainless steel, commercial grade, three compartment sink, a high-pressure sprayer for rinsing produce, and a French drain to carry away the runoff. With this, we will be able to clean our vegetables to sell to local businesses and farmers’ markets. Thanks, Andy. Humboldt County is healthier because of your generosity.
