How it began

Our Mission


It is the goal of the Thurston Community Gardens to serve our community by providing a place for residents to grow nutritious, healthy food, increase self-sufficiency and build a sense of community.  We are deeply committed to community pride and unity, a desire to create a space where neighbors meet and share a common interest in gardening, learn from each other and provide healthy food to those in our community most in need.  We honor diverse abilities, ages, and cultures.  All gardeners are welcome!


Our Vision

The Garden is meant for all members of our community.  Plots will be leased on a seasonal basis, to families of all income levels on a sliding fee scale. The largest plot in the Garden is reserved for the pantry, who's harvest will go to feed those in need.
