Community Gardens

Harvest Pierce County

The City of Tacoma partners with the Pierce Conservation District's Community Gardens Program to support community gardens throughout the community.

The gardens thrive on TAGRO, which Environmental Services delivers to the gardens as needed.

Community gardens build stronger, safer communities by connecting citizens to each other and to their local food system. By participating, you improve community health, have access to better and more food, fight climate change, improve the local economy and enjoy fresh garden veggies.

Tacoma is home to more than 35 community gardens, including 11 on City-owned property. Gardens are managed by Metro Parks, churches, community groups, schools and universities, and many other organizations.

For information about community gardens in Tacoma and Pierce County, go to the

Harvest Pierce County website  or contact garden program coordinator Kristen McIvor.
