To the editor:

My name is Captn Blynd and I have a proposal for the community. While 
at first this may seem absurd, please take a moment and really think about it.

I propose that the South Whidbey Garden Club ask for volunteers to 
form a low-profit business. I will pay for this licensing. I ask that 
all proceeds go to the Island County Food Bank. I will provide what 
equipment I can afford. I will provide my business outline.

I will provide my time and labor as a volunteer. I will donate all 
excess from my garden to this organization.

I have commented to various individuals in the past that the problem 
seems to be that there are not any legitimate mainstream people 
involved. I was seeking a Master Gardener that had no interest or 
need to use this plant as medication.

Now I want ALL the Master Gardeners and I want to use them to feed 
the hungry. If not the garden club, I will make the same offer to any 
rock-solid legitimate responsible group.

This should translate into costs to the patient EVEN LOWER than what 
I have previously mentioned while making certain that there is not 
one hungry mouth in Island County.

I will provide a means of contact to both the Whidbey Examiner and 
the South Whidbey Record. I await your response.

Captn Blynd
