Fresh food & friendship!

Olympia Parks, Arts & Recreation is excited to offer you the opportunity to grow your own healthy food by becoming a member of one of our two Community Gardens. In addition to increasing your access to delicious produce, community gardening is also a fantastic way to build community with your neighbors.
