Special Thanks to our lead garden sponsor for 2020
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.
