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 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. 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 $40.
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.
If you are interested in getting a plot contact Claire at 507-269-7502 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
See the link below for a sample Gardener Commitment Contract, which is similar to current expectations and the Gardener Application we are using this year.
