Birchyville garden is a hybrid in that it provides part of the food grown to the Food Banks and part goes to other businesses and neighbors in the Birchyville Food Co-op. (BFG) This year it will add a 30x40 foot greenhouse dedicated to the FBG for winter crops. The gardens have ducks and chickens meandering through fenced off sections, eating bugs and slugs while fertilizing the soil with their droppings.
Size: 3,000 sq. ft. expanding to include other beds
Gardening Style: Raised rows, partial irrigation, a greenhouse for growing and a greenhouse for starting seeds.
Growing: Fruits, berries, vegetables including winter storage crops, herbs (has chickens and ducks as well)
Serving: Port Townsend Food Bank (Distributes Wednesday and Saturday) and Birchyville Food Co-op.
Supporters: Birch Shapiro (land owner and ergonomic tools), Sholds mulching materials and Hermann Brothers.
Need: Volunteers to prep, plant, weed and harvest for Wednesday and Saturday distribution at the Port Townsend Food Bank.
