Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Foster and sustain a culture of community gardening throughout Pierce County through community building, education, advocacy and celebration.
The Tacoma/Pierce Community Garden Program acts as a support network for all 54 of the community gardens through out the County, hosts numerous county wide events and classes, and works to increase access to healthy, fresh produce to county citizens who need it the most. While Community Gardening has been an activity enjoyed by residents of Tacoma and Pierce County for decades, the Tacoma/Pierce County Community Garden program was founded in 2010 through a collaborative effort led by the ACHIEVE coalition. The City of Tacoma took leadership role in creating a position to support the efforts of community gardeners county-wide. Initially housed at Forterra (formerly the Cascade Land Conservancy) as a pilot project, in 2012 the program was established as a permanent project of the Pierce Conservation District. We are supported by a diversity of community partners, including the City of Tacoma, Pierce County Public Works and Utilities, Metro Parks Tacoma, the Tacoma Pierce County Health Department, and the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation.
