The Washougal Parks & Recreation Community Garden Program consists of our new Downtown Community Garden, located at 2036 Main Street. Our program promotes community building, sustainable practices, and ecologically responsible gardening. We are growing! Join us and help fuel this movement towards a healthier Washougal.
Gardeners in the program have the opportunity to grow flowers, fruits, and vegetables in privately leased plots and also cooperate with one another to manage the larger community garden site.
Gardening is one of the most popular recreational activities in America, providing an opportunity for recreation, exercise, therapy, and often access to a wider variety of nutritious and healthy food than might otherwise be available. The City of Washougal recognizes community gardening as an activity that contributes to the health and well-being of the wider community as well. Gardening together provides the opportunity for education, environmental awareness, social interaction among diverse people, inter-generational and cross-cultural connections, and a connection to the environment and the practice of sustainability.
