Olympia Community Garden

For over three decades Olympia Community Garden has made plots available to people who have no place to garden or who want to garden in a community setting. We currently have several spaces available for new gardeners.

We garden organically, we share gardening knowledge, and we continue the essential human activity of growing food.

Olympia Community Garden is located at 1405 13th Ave. SE just west of Central, near where Central ends at I-5 about ten blocks south of 4th Ave.

The garden occupies almost an acre of a larger parcel of undeveloped land owned by Jeff Berschauer who gives us permission to garden there on a year-to-year basis.

We have fruit trees.  We put up an effective deer fence a few years back and improved it in 2017. A large green belt adjoins the garden. We have a community plot on which we grow food for the Thurston County Food Bank or for distribution to other people in need.

Available for the season are 20’x20’ plots for $40, or half-plots (approximately 10′ x 20′) for $20.

We need gardeners who will do a great job of actively gardening their plot throughout the season, put in four hours a month on community tasks such as weed control and helping with the community plot, and generally participate in the spectrum of garden activity.

We have abundant hand tools, a front-tine tiller and two sheds.

To see guidance on participating and the agreement that is required to have a plot, go to Olympia Community Garden Gardener Agreement, 2017.

Contact information for joining the garden for the 2018 season will be available soon.
