Community Gardens is excited to announce that we are about to start building our 12th Community Garden!

We need your help! Volunteer!

We can’t do this build alone. We’ll need the community to come out and help us mix soil, move rock, build raised beds and generally build this garden from the ground up. Interested in helping out? Sign up for one of our volunteer days (October 3rd, 4th, and/or 5th).

Location:

It is just across Siren Road from Hellgate Elementary, and slated to have 24 plots.

Estimated to open:

Spring 2020

Origin Story:

The garden came about when landowners of the Hellgate Gardens development asked Garden City Harvest if we would create a garden on the property. Hellgate Gardens is helping to fund the construction of the garden and the Hellgate Gardens Homeowners Association will be helping maintain the costs of upkeep as well.

We’ve got to move this topsoil into the garden! Want to help? We’d be ever so grateful.

Garden Name

We will be asking the gardeners to come up with a name for this garden — it will not be the Siren Road Garden forever. Feel free to comment below if you have an idea for the garden name!

We will be updating this blog post as we build. Keep checking back, won’t you?

The garden will be fenced, have 8 accessible beds (a rental includes two accessible beds) and 20 ground-level beds. The yellow pathways will be crushed granite and the rest of the pathways will be crushed rock.
