The Thrivent Woodson YMCA Community Garden will kick off its fourth growing season in the spring. The garden helps to support local families’ nutritional needs with healthy and delicious seasonal vegetables, harvested entirely by volunteers.
Volunteer work in the garden will be needed through September. Join us one time or multiple times. Stay up to date on the garden Facebook page, Thrivent/Woodson YMCA Community Garden.
Our volunteer experience means:
Forming friendships with other community members
The Woodson YMCA Community Garden began as ½ acre property along Camp Phillips Road, owned by Tony Schillinger. He generously agreed to allow the Y to install a vegetable garden for community use. After creating raised beds, a drip irrigation system was installed. A large portion of start-up costs for installation were provided by Thrivent Financial. The Woodson YMCA believes strongly in being a place where families can grow stronger together in spirit, mind and body. What better place to begin a community garden to support local families’ nutritional needs with healthy and delicious seasonal vegetables?
The first planting day was June 3, 2014.
