You might wonder what "SCWR goes CSA" means.
Sonoma County Wildlife Rescue is planning on offering our members, guests, volunteers and staff
Community Supported Agriculture is a way for the community to connect to the growers of their vegetables. Through seasonal or monthly subscriptions, members of a CSA receive a share of the harvest.
That's our garden fresh veggies straight from us to your table.
"Going Green" and "Keeping it Local" are two of the most used and trendy words in our community. You hear it everywhere, but are you living it?
We are living it here. As part of our PEEP, the Wildlife Educational Garden is the first thing you see when you come for a visit to our wildlife center.
We receive at least 300 calls a year from the public with complaints about nuisance wildlife stealing fruits and veggies from their gardens and doing other damage. To help them, we have wildlife friendly solutions for protecting your garden from your wild neighbors. We also teach more wildlife friendly techniques to discourage other pesky unwanted garden creatures such as gophers and damaging insects. Our garden will also show you ways to attract supportive wildlife such as the precious pollinators and beautiful songbirds.
How can we afford to offer all this amazing education to the public? We can't.
That's why we need you, your family and friends, and your neighbors to support this much needed education program.
Right now we are re-vamping our garden to be the most educational and productive garden it can be. To make sure our CSA program meets your needs, we're conducting an easy, short survey to find out what kind of vegetables you'd be interested in, and a few logistics. Please click here to participate.
Want to be even more involved in this emerging program? We need gardening volunteers! By volunteering in our garden, you spend some time away from your screens and gadgets and get back to nature. We have a beautiful greenhouse that you and your children will love working in. We would love to have a seasonal scarecrow, build a produce stand to offer our goodies to guests after the Saturday tours and so many other things.
Who can make all this happen? You!
It's a great way to feel good, get to know us and our wildlife rehabilitation efforts, and contribute to a great cause.
We've already had significant contributions to this project from the United States Coast Guard, the Eagle Scouts and many other loving and caring volunteers.
Join them. Imagine yourself in a beautiful and healthy setting, getting fresh air and helping to heal Sonoma County wildlife all at the same time. It doesn't get much better!
