Park Place Gardens

The garden at Park Place is the largest garden of the group with approximately 18,000 square feet of space. It is located at 1500 32nd St. S. Each plot has enough space for a small family to have fresh veggies (and a few to spare) throughout the summer.

Greenhouse

The River City Harvest Greenhouse is located in the Cascade County Disaster and Emergency Services building on 1st Ave SW and 5th Street NW. Managed by Master Gardeners, it is used for continued education, and produces fresh vegetables and herbs year round for local senior centers and Meals on Wheels.

Electric City Conservatory

The garden at the Electric City Conservatory is located at 1413 5th Ave. N and is our organic garden. It has 20 plots, 100 square feet. Perfect for a beginner or square foot gardening.

Salvation Army Gardens

The Salvation Army garden is located at 527 9th Ave. S next to the Salvation Army’s Family Services building. They regularly provide food for families in need and rely solely on volunteers. We currently are looking for a passionate person to manage this garden.

Southside Gardens

The Southside Garden is located at 1801 Benefis Court, directly across from the Peak. Their mission is to improve the dietary intake of low income senior citizens over the age of 60, disabled young adults and disadvantaged children.

"gardening by the seed of our plants"
Gardeners are the first sign of a commitment to the community.

River City Harvest Mission Statement: Provide space for local citizens to garden together. Create a shared vision, work collaboratively, and to cultivate a place for people to learn about and to experience the joys of gardening. Provide education, outreach programs and activities and to help supplement food donation organizations. River City Harvest is a non-profit organization that began in 2008. It has expanded to 4 gardens and a greenhouse. RCH offers gardening plots for rent in two locations plus we have dedicated gardens for feeding the food insecure. We welcome volunteers of all different levels and skills. Let's get dirty!
