Northeast Community Center Garden

E Liberty Ave & N Lacey St Spokane, WA 99207

 

Step away from the hectic hustle of every day life and participate in a Community Garden...

Established in 1994, the Northeast Community Garden was created at the Community Center by the LDS church as a part of their sesquicentennial celebration. The first year's crops were farmed in the tradition of early pioneers and produce given to the food bank for Northeast families. The gardens were then made available for individual gardening. In 2007, to support the expansion of the Community Center, the gardens were relocated to the corner of Liberty and Lacy Street and offered twice the number of garden spaces. All were quickly filled.

The garden operates on a corner of the Andrew Rypien Playfield. In addition to youth soccer and baseball, the entire field is surrounded by a lighted walking path. Comcast employees constructed a nearby play structure.

Garden spaces are reserved on an annual basis with prior year's Gardeners having the opportunity to renew their spaces. Remaining spaces are rented on a first come, first serve basis. Additional spaces are also available at the Pumphouse garden at Crestline and East Hoffman. Call 509-487-1603, beginning in March, to reserve a space.

Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church Community Garden

4320 S Conklin St. Spokane WA

 

Beautiful Savior Lutheran acquired the grounds to the west of the church in 2010. Formerly a nursery, the area has been cultivated as a Community Garden. Our goal has been to make this land available to our neighbors. Many families have utilized the garden to supplement the feeding of their families.

Community gardens increase a sense of community ownership and stewardship.
Community gardens foster the development of a community identity and spirit.

Produce traditional crops otherwise unavailable locally.

Community gardens allow families and individuals without land of their own the opportunity to produce food.
Community gardens provide access to nutritionally rich foods that may otherwise be unavailable to low-income families and individuals.

Urban agriculture is 3-5 times more productive per acre than traditional large-scale farming.
With food prices expected to reach a 10 to 15 percent increase, less and less food will be available to those in poverty, It then becomes even more vital to have a dependable supply of fresh food for the disadvantaged.

Studies have shown that community gardeners and their children eat healthier diets than do nongardening families.

Community gardens add beauty to the community and heighten peoples awareness and appreciation for living things.
Scientific studies show that crime decreases in neighborhoods as the amount of green space increases.
Please join us this spring, summer and fall as we look forward to having a banner year in the garden. Help will be needed. We will inform you of those opportunities as they become available. For more information about reserving a garden bed contact Tom Lucke (448-6064).

Emerson/Garfield

Salvation Army Community Garden

222 East Indiana Avenue, Spokane, WA

 

Digging in the dirt might not seem like the place to learn life skills and meet other community members. But that’s exactly what’s happening at The Salvation Army in Pierce County.

The Salvation Army in Tacoma opened a community garden this year for the first time as part of the SHIELD program, which stands for safe housing, healthy habits, increase habits, increase assets, encourage relationships, life skills, and developmental assets.

The garden provides clients with new relationships, life skills and confidence. Gardening has brought the Pierce County community together, strengthening ties between The Salvation Army clients and community members. This summer, people from all backgrounds will be working together alongside each other to produce fresh fruits and vegetables for themselves, as well as The Salvation Army food bank and shelter.

“The community garden is an inexpensive way to get people around the community involved and help our clients see that they can make a change,” Major Donald Sheppard said. “Clients are trying to change their lives and grow as people. The garden provides all the resources to help them start making those changes.”

“The community garden helps clients to increase their skill set and witness something they are able to do themselves,” Sheppard said. “It promotes self-esteem and does wonders for their sense of value.”

Pictured Above: Members of the Northwest Leadership Foundation help break ground and build garden beds.

It also allows clients to grow their own food, learning the necessary skills it takes to start and maintain the garden.

If the gardener chooses, the food can be distributed to The Salvation Army shelter and food bank, allowing an opportunity for clients to give back and help others in need. As part of showing appreciation to those who have served in the military, veterans receive a garden bed for free.

“There are thirty garden beds total,” Sheppard said. “This helps our client’s welfare, not only physically but also psychologically and spiritually.”

Clients also have the opportunity to teach gardening classes, based on their experience in the garden. Young adults who come from broken homes have been identified to teach the classes, in order to provide them with leadership opportunities. Classes will be held throughout July and August.

Special thanks to the sponsors of the community garden project – Tacoma Chamber of Commerce and McLendon Hardware.

Spokane Valley

East Valley Farms And School Program

15711 East Wellesley Avenue, Spokane Valley

 

The East Valley Farms and Schools Partnership have created an exciting opportunity to help the community members and students of the East Valley School District understand the complexities of farming and gardening while building unity among community members. We feel the scope of our community garden is limited only by our imagination and determination. Not only will classrooms have this opportunity, but all community members. Families are the backbone of our schools and when families are supported in investing time with each other then families can be more successful. Grandparents, neighbors and students alike can come together and grow together through gardening.

This garden is a new initiative but has great potential and promises to be a community and school district driven endeavor in years to come. The garden will have 10 raised beds that will be 6 feet wide by 50 feet long. Each bed will be divided into 6’x10’ sections for participating gardeners. Harvesting will continue into October when we will have a community clean up and prep for the next spring.

Ambition takes work and as students and community members become invested in their garden and work together toward its success, partnerships and relationships will be established between our schools and community. We feel that a district is as strong as its members. When there is a desire for improvement, a vision for the future, and willing hands, great and lasting work can be accomplished.

Pumpkin Patch Community Garden

N Argonne Rd & E Maringo Dr., Millwood, WA 99212

 

The Pumpkin Patch Community Garden is in an historic rural setting which was the popular “Pumpkin Patch” back in the 1980’s and ’90’s. After the land sat vacant for five years, community members gathered together and added 30 garden plots, some of which were planted to benefit Second Harvest’s Plant a Row for the Hungry program. Pumpkins were also planted and a native wildflower border serves as a buffer between the busy road and the garden.

West Central Community Garden

1832 W Dean Ave Spokane, WA 99201

 

West Central neighborhood of Spokane, Washington is a food desert

According to the  USDA Food Desert Locator, the West Central neighborhood of Spokane, Washington is a food desert. A food desert is defined as “a low-income census tract where a substantial number or share of residents has low access to a supermarket or large grocery store” (http://www.ers.usda.gov/data/fooddesert/about.html#Defined). Residents of food deserts find it more difficult to access healthy and affordable foods.

West Central Community Garden helps with fresh vegetables & more.

Located in the center of this inner city neighborhood, West Central Community Garden seeks to offset the difficulties of living in a food desert by reclaiming a large vacant lot for urban agriculture. In 2011, the garden was designated by the mayor’s office as the city’s primary community garden for the northwest quadrant of Spokane. The garden not only improves the availability of nutritious food to West Central residents, but it also provides a place for neighbors to gather and get to know one another.

Raised Vegetable Garden Beds produce food for individuals and meal programs.

The garden currently features 49 raised growing beds. During the 2011 growing season, approximately one third of the beds were tended by neighborhood residents allowing them to supplement their nutrition with the fresh fruits and vegetables they grew. The remaining beds were tended by neighborhood residents and volunteers, and the food grown was donated to HT Dinner Table (a weekly free meal program) and to the local food bank,
Our Place Ministries. The garden was also frequented by the homeless who gleaned produce to supplement their inadequate diets. In 2011, we also held several free gardening classes open to the neighborhood. Partnering with Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, we also held a combination Vacation Bible School and Garden Camp for neighborhood kids.
