Come Help the Garden Grow!

Rainier Beach Learning Garden Seeks Volunteers!

The Rainier Beach Learning Garden, one of Seattle Tilth’s newest gardens, has served over 500 students this year. Young people are learning how to grow organic food, compost and eat fresh food from the garden. The garden is ready to grow in order to better serve the community. We’d love your help!

Work parties are scheduled on weekends starting July 31. If you’d like to participate, we strongly encourage you to attend one of these Volunteer Orientations to find out more about the garden and work parties:
