Community garden plots available in Washougal

The city of Washougal is seeking to fill open spaces at its downtown community garden.

Gardeners can “grow flowers, fruits, and vegetables in privately leased plots, and also cooperate with one another to manage the larger community garden site,” located at 2036 Main Street, according to the city.

The Washougal Parks & Recreation Community Garden Program “promotes community building, sustainable practices, and ecologically responsible gardening,” according to the city.

“The city of Washougal recognizes community gardening as an activity that contributes to the health and well-being of the wider community as well,” according to the city’s website. “Gardening together provides the opportunity for education, environmental awareness, social interaction among diverse people, inter-generational and cross-cultural connections, and a connection to the environment and the practice of sustainability.”
