Frisco’s new greenhouse will host a ‘bed raising’ Wednesday

According to Summit Prevention Alliance spokeswoman Joanna Rybak, an old fashion “barn raising” will be held Wednesday at the Summit County Community and Senior Center in Frisco from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Community members are invited to help raise the beds for the greenhouses being built.

“Experienced carpenters, builders and non-professional people are all needed,” Rybak said in an e-mail. “Please come out and support this community project. You’ll learn how to build a raised bed. … We are determined to build these beds on Wednesday; rain, shine or snow!”

Participants should bring the following (if they have it): Hammers, gloves, shovels, rakes, wheel barrows, and a big, heavy150-foot #10 extension cord.

A free-pizza lunch will be sponsored by Backcountry Brewery at Wednesday’s event.

“These covered gardens will provide food banks with fresh, local produce and give Summit County Seniors a community gathering place to grow their own vegetables and socialize too,” Rybak said. “Volunteer to get involved in our own ‘ultra-local food’ movement.
