Thank you Hewlett-Packard!

We have been very lucky to have the opportunity to work with some amazing volunteers from Hewlett-Packard this spring!  HP has a unique program for its employees - they are each given 4 hours per month to give back to the Corvallis community by volunteering with local organizations, and many have been spending those hours at the S.A.G.E garden during group volunteer days. The volunteers who have been coming out have been a lot of fun to work with and they get so much gardening done! Thank you for being ready  rototill, create high piles of compost to cook in the sun, to plant onions, to harvest rainbow chard, and to amend the soil!

The progress in the garden has been astounding.  From the first day in April:



to our most recent work day last Friday:



The S.A.G.E garden grows thanks to the dedication of community volunteers, like those from Hewlett-Packard. Thank you for your work at the garden, and for your dedication to growing fresh food for community members who need it most!

If your group, service organization, or business is interested in coming out to S.A.G.E for a volunteer day, please contact SAGE@corvallisenvironmentalcenter.org or call (541) 753-9211! You can also find resources about our group volunteer days here.
