There are lots of ways to get involved! Join our Facebook group, attend an event, adopt a garden plot and grow your own food, bring your classroom to the garden, volunteer your time to tend beds for those in need, and be a part of growing food and community in Tacoma!
All are welcome to stop by and visit the garden or volunteer. If you’ve never been to the garden before, please schedule a short orientation by emailing us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
