Olympia Community Garden

Olympia Community Garden – For over two 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 St. SE just west of Central, where Central runs into 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 last spring. A large green belt adjoins the garden. We have a community plot on which we grow food for the Thurston County Food Bank.

Available for the season are 20’x20’ plots for $50.

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 and a front-tine tiller and two sheds.

If you are interested in getting a plot contact  Jess at 360-292-2974 or email her at skirtmuseum@gmail.com.

For other matters you can email Charles Adler  at charlesays@gmail.com or call him at 360-943-9623.
