Dime In Time
Pullman Community Garden at Koppel Farm began in 1994 and has 100 plots on 3 acres near the South Fork of the Palouse River. The garden is operated organically- no fungicides, insecticides, or herbicides, and gardeners also help with common tasks such as work parties, path maintenance, and lawn mowing. In this way, Pullman Community Garden fosters a community of gardeners who exchange knowledge and experience with newer gardeners
10 of the garden plots are reserved for the Community Action Center Edible Landscape Program, and Backyard Harvest, as well as free plots to low income families. The garden is a refuge for wildlife and insect pollinators like bumblebees, mason bees, and cavity bees.
The funds from Dime in Time will be used to purchase new hand tools, hoses, and equipment for rental. Thanks to your contribution, the garden will continue to provide an opportunity to learn and pass on skills about growing food to new generations, especially those living in an urban environment.
Dime in Time is a community giving program of the Moscow Food Co-op. Customers are given a “10-cent token” every time they bring in a reusable tote bag or drink cup. Customers donate their dime by depositing the token into one of three clear plastic bins, each of which represents a cause or organization selected by the Dime in Time committee. These bins will rotate every three months, with one bin always reserved for the Co-op Community Fund (formerly known as the Seed Sowers Fund.)
This Co-op program is to benefit, non-profit, non-sectarian, and non-discriminatory organizations whose goals complement or support the Mission Statement of the Co-op:
Working together to nourish and nurture our community
The Dime in Time Committee meets quarterly in February, May, August, and November. Organizations are advised to plan their budget around receiving Dime in Time funds at the end of the next quarter. IE – If your request is approved at the meeting in February, funds will be distributed at the end of May.
