Growing Veterans starts Thursday stand at Seattle VA Hospital

Jul 3rd, 2014 | Category: News

Growing Veterans is now a vendor on Thursdays at the VA Hospital in Seattle. The group brings their produce, VA marketgrown on a few acres outside of Lynden, as well as items from their partner organization, Growing Washington, based in Everson. Laura Merritt, of VA Puget Sound Health Care System, worked with Growing Veterans to bring the group to the Seattle Division. Custer resident and military veteran Matt Aamot (right, with Merritt) is the group’s Volunteer/Outreach Coordinator and took the first load down in June. For more information about Growing Veterans, see their web page at growingveterans.org.

The group is currently looking for a veteran in the Seattle area to help out for 10 hours a week at the stand. Contact staff@growingveterans.org for more information.
