Thanks to the fantastic groups of volunteers who came out to support us, we’ve come a long way! There is still work to be done, however. Be on the lookout for volunteer day announcements in spring. We’ll need help installing a fence and laying down ADA accessible pathways.

Garden progress as of 10/5/2019!

We hosted three volunteer workdays, and had a blast! We built and installed beds, moved soil, and laid pathways. As you can see, it’s starting to look like a garden!

Part of the Hellgate Gardens development, we’ll be right across the road from Hellgate Elementary, which is the brick building you see in the background.

Location:

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

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

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

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.
