About the Community Gardens
The gardens are full for 2022!
The Waskasoo Community Gardens are located in the Waskasoo Playground at 4409 58th Street. We have 10 garden plots, two perennial beds and a fruit and berry orchard.
While the ten garden plots are planted and harvested by private families, the orchard and perennial beds are open to the public to enjoy. In the orchard you will find apples, cherries, chokeberries, and haskaps and in the perennial beds you can help yourself to rhubarb, herbs, and cut flowers.
Looking for a garden bed? Check back here in early April to see whether we have any open plots.
Interested in volunteering with us? We are always looking for people to tend and water the public spaces. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested.
