A brief description of the institution’s community garden:

Community Garden at the Wildcat Neighborhood Farm:
Our space for individuals and groups to practice resilience through growing their own food. No room for a garden at your home? Our gardeners work on learning how to grow food sustainably and resourcefully. The Garden is mostly volunteer run, focused on building community and practicing resilience. We are open to all CWU Students, Faculty, Staff, and Ellensburg community members.

There is no fee or financial requirement associated with the Community Garden. Thanks to funding from the Student and Activities Fee and the Farm as host, we are able to provide tools, seeds, and soil amendments, so that gardeners can participate if they do not have the means. Gardeners can purchase their own seeds, transplants, and supplies if they wish. Any soil amendments must be approved first by the Farm Manager.
