Olympia Kiwanis Gardens

The Olympia Kiwanis Club and Foundation have been raising vegetables for the
Thurston County Food Bank since 1990.  The project started with the garden
on 11th Avenue NW on the west side of Olympia.  Crops this year on the west side
include tomatoes, carrots, pole beans, winter squash, beets, broccoli,
cauliflower and Asian cabbage.

In 2010 two additional garden spaces were added, one on Friendly Grove Rd
NW., where this year we are growing cabbage, carrots, beets and garlic.

The third garden, Washington State Capitol Campus, north of the Employment
Security Building on the East Campus, is growing onions, garlic, potatoes and
winter squash.

The vegetables are taken to the Food Bank when they are harvested.
In recent years, the gardens have produced between 25,000 to 35,000 pounds
of vegetables per year.

The gardens are sponsored by Olympia Kiwanis Club and are supported by the
Food Bank, local organizations and volunteers.

To receive a weekly schedule of garden activities, send an email to John
Zuroske at

If you have questions about the gardens you may call Don Leaf at
360-357-7188, or 360-701-5657, or email Don at leafd@comcast.net.
