FOOD & WATER: We will provide hearty, healthy snacks, as well as water. You should bring a water bottle. And if you know you get especially hungry, bring a lunch.
LOCATION: The Garfield Nature Trail is on Olympia’s Westside. More specific directions at http://www.ci.olympia.wa.us/cityservices/par/parks/GarfieldNature.htm Our work will take place in the eastern end of the park, next to West Bay Drive. Parking: There is no parking on the side of the park, however. Park on the Rogers side of the park, and then it’s a quick walk to where you’ll meet us. Intercity Transit: The trail is located on the #45 bus line, which goes between the Mall and the Downtown Transit Center.
Due to the record breaking major flooding of the rivers, most notably the Chehalis River, there are many farmers who are looking to Olympia for Help. Some of the affected farmers are the local farms that supply the Olympia Farmer's Market, Olympia Co-op and other local business, have lost everything. They have lost their storage food, tractors, houses, etc."
