Windermere's Community Service Day was established in 1984 to offer agents and staff a chance to volunteer an entire workday to give back to the neighborhoods in which they live and work. After all, real estate is rooted in our communities. And an investment in our neighborhoods gives us all a better place to call home.
This year we had the privilege to work with the Snohomish Garden Club at the Martha Perry Vegetable Garden. The veggie garden provides thousands of pounds of fresh produce to the Snohomish and Maltby Food Banks as well as the Snohomish Senior Center, and is instrumental in the fight against hunger in south Snohomish County. The land for the garden is generously donated by the Bailey Family Farm. We spent the day getting our hands dirty, staking beds, planting, weeding, labeling and sprucing everything up. We even built a bat box!
