106 Austin Drive, West Richland
West Richland has a new Community Garden! The Community Garden is located at Yellowstone Trail Park, near the intersection of Bombing Range Road and Van Giesen Street. The City is partnering with WSU Extension Master Gardeners, who are excited to provide community gardeners with free seeds, expert advice, and mentor assistance throughout the 2016 growing season.
The garden was established through a partnership between volunteers and the City, with assistance from many generous local businesses. The garden project was launched by Mayor Brent Gerry as a community project to enhance the Van Giesen Corridor through beautification, enhancement, volunteerism, and community involvement.
There are 42 raised garden plots available to rent for the 2015 growing season on a first-come, first-serve basis. Handicap accessible plots are also available. The City will provide water and garden hoses, but gardeners are responsible for all tools.
The fee to reserve a garden plot is $10 for the 2016 season. A Garden Committee will oversee and help manage the garden. The $10 fee will be waived for those who serve on the Garden Committee. Contact Andrea Vaage at 509-967-5902 or email@example.com for more information.
