Over the holidays our farmers and our customers did something amazing. We set aside our own holiday pressures to buy & knit socks for those experiencing homelessness. Socks are the number one most requested non food item at shelters. As farmers we know all about wet feet and wanted to be sure that others could have some dry socks to put on after our wet rains.
Thanks to vendor Barbara Odegard from Ironwood Farm Certified Organic for the idea and to all our generous vendors and customers for donating 179 pairs of socks. Sarah from AIDS VANCOUVER ISLAND picked them up and will be distributing them to those in need in the valley.
