David Minor died six years ago today in a bicycle accident at the corner of 13th and Willamette. You have likely seen the ghost bike memorial still standing on that corner. What you may not know, is that in the six years since we lost David more than $20,000 has been raised in his memory and awarded to organizations and programs creating access to locally grown foods and gardening skills for those in need.
Help us continue to grow David’s “organic legacy.” Join us for good food and music this Thursday evening, June 5th.
The Eugene City Bakery has generously agreed to contribute 20% of sales between 5 and 8pm to David’s Memorial Fund.
The Joanne Broh Trio will be on hand serving up blues, jazz, and contemporary music.
