Thursday, June 2nd

Cortona Cafe

2425 East Union Street, Seattle WA 98122

6:30 to 8:30pm

Bring a neighbor or friend and stop in to say hello!  They will have tasty snacks and beverages; tours of the garden and property; a slide show of their work and future program; seed planting for young people.  All funds raised during this event will go directly to programming for youth in the neighborhood. Consider supporting the organization with:

  • $10 – allowing the youth of Green Plate Special to plant vegetables, giving them hands on experience with nutritious food.
  • $35 – helps Green Plate Special build partnerships in the community to provide free programming.
  • $100- helps Green Plate Special build the kitchen where youth will learn how easy it is to cook delicious and nutritious food.

There are many ways to get involved including:

  • In-kind donations – Do you own a restaurant, have a spare shovel or a garden gnome?
  • Host a “garden party” – Help spread the word about Green Plate Special and raise needed funds to impact youth in the area.
  • Find out if your company matches your donation – many of our local companies do
  • Volunteer – Are you an expert in social media, a master gardener or just have free time. Green Plate Special wants you!

We look forward to seeing you there!
