December was a short but very busy month for us at Trellis, as we continued growing and selling fresh herbs and produce around the Kittitas Valley. This month, we returned to the Ellensburg Holiday Market where Jake, Ramsey, and Riley helped us sell holiday herb baskets to local community members.We also made deliveries of fresh herbs and produce to restaurants in Ellensburg who continue to support the owners of Terravine Growers. These deliveries have meant a lot to our guys as they get to see the entire process of being a small organic farmer, from seed to sale. All of this has meant that we have spent much of the month of December keeping busy in our green houses. This work was aided by the addition of a gorgeous new sink/work space which was donated to us by Albers Sheet Metal. We would like to say thank you again to the Albers family and all of their employees for their generous donation. site generator The sink has given us additional work space to seed and transplant seedlings into larger pots, as well as a large sink to water plants and rinse off pots and trays.
We were joined by Ramsey and Brock in the month of December. We started off December by driving to the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest and cutting down the Trellis Christmas tree. This was a really enjoyable community outing as we were joined by Anne and Janice. All of the guys enjoyed going out into the forest and searching for the perfect tree for Trellis. This month, we were also able to give back to our community. Trellis helped the F.I.S.H. bank by preparing holiday baskets for underprivileged families in the Kittitas Valley. The guys did an excellent job at preparing the baskets, and their hard work and professionalism impressed several of the staff at the food bank.
We hope that everyone had a safe and restful holiday period. We are excited to start 2015 and look forward to all of the new people and experiences that lay ahead for us.
