Tree Planting Event

Yes! This opportunity is open. Community Gardens are deemed an "essential service," so gardening continues during this COVID19 time. Of course, we follow all precautions of social distancing of at least 6 feet between volunteers. And you may bring your own gloves and tools. We do have these supplies for you, and they are sanitized and gloves are washed after each use. Since the garden is large, 1.6 acres, there are many tasks to accomplish while staying apart from others.

Yes! We are still growing food for our local food bank!

Every first Saturday of the month, from 10 AM to approximately noon or 1 PM, volunteers are welcome to join as we garden together and transform the common areas of the garden's many amenities.

We also offer community service activities at different times, too, so if interested in a time other than the first Saturday of the month, please reach out to me.

The garden's common areas include: Fig Forest, Kiwi Trellis, Pollinator Garden, Edible Flower Garden, Hummingbird Garden, Native Pant Garden, 3 demo Rain Gardens, Fruit Tree Orchard, Sensory Garden for kids, raised garden plots for seniors, and other p-patch plots that can be rented for $30.00 per year.

The Garden is beautiful, enjoyable space that's 1.6 acres next to the New Start High School in Burien.

614 SW 129th Ave. Burien, WA

Free parking in the school parking lot.
