New Community Garden for the Eastside of Tacoma

Good News for Tacoma! The "Good Medicine Community Garden" will be built this Spring at East 32nd and Portland Avenue. This is a wonderful community effort lead by the Puyallup Tribe, along with First Creek Neighbors, the City of Tacoma and many others working to build a better and healthier community.

We still need some funding to finish this garden project as planned, but we now have enough to get started building it. We'll be having work parties throughout the Spring, so keep your eyes and ears open to opportunities to help, we'll need your help, plus it's fun.

A special thanks goes to the Puyallup Tribe of Indians for providing the land and a large portion of the funding. Sustainable Tacoma also provided a small grant for the project.

Learn more about how to get involved at our next garden meeting on Friday evening, April 1st, 6:30 at the Portland Avenue Community Center. Also, we'll talk about it at the First Creek Neighbors monthly meeting on April 6th, time 6:30 same location.
