Community Gardens


Community Gardens bless both
the gardener and the receiver. 
  • Neighbors enjoy working together, and becoming better friends.

  • Everyone enjoys sharing with those in need.

Statistics
  • Prices for garden beds vary between $25 and $35 for a growing season. Some community gardens will negotiate a bed price on a sliding scale depending on a person's income. 
What You Can Do
  • Participate in a community garden.   Contact a community garden to reserve a garden space for you. 

  • Plan a community garden.

    • Talk with friends and neighbors, sharing your idea and asking them to join you.
    • Assess the skills and resources within your group (construction, fencing, gardening knowledge, fundraising, leadership).
    • Hold a public meeting for the entire community to invite their participation. 
    • Establish rules, appoint a manager and determine how to register participants. 
    • Raise money and gather needed materials to build the garden. 
    • Design the garden.  The soil in raised beds warms quickly in the summer. 
    • Purchase soil and fertilizer. 

  • Real Food Spokane.  Learn about nutrition, gardening, farmers markets, and ways you can get involved in making fresh, local food available to area residents and institutions.  For more information, contact
