Need Gardening Help?

Are you looking for help with your first garden? Our GRuB School Students and Kitchen Garden Project staff recently completed a wonderful basic gardening video and it has some great tips for maintaining a healthy garden. We also have a summer-long workshop series that’s free to current & past KGP gardeners and only $5/class for the general community. You can view the full workshop schedule here and then visit our Events page to register.

Another KGP Season Complete!

We’re officially done with the 2014 Kitchen Garden Project build season!! This spring, we partnered with families, schools, and organizations throughout Thurston & Mason Counties to build 60 raised bed home gardens, 6 container gardens, 5 institutional gardens, and one community garden. None of this would have been possible without the support of build volunteers, donors & foundations, our GRuB School students, and businesses who donated & discounted supplies. A special thanks goes out to the Boeing Employees Community Fund, Titus-Will Cars, State Farm Youth Advisory Board, the Freas Foundation, and Steve Prestin for making it possible for us to purchase a brand-spanking new work truck this year!

GRuB Garden – The Greenest Investment You’ll Make This Year

The large room is full of people, standing and sitting, some with hands in pockets and others holding gently onto their kids. A nervous but excited air permeates the space, and one man begins.  “Collard greens,” he announces. “Yep, definitely collard greens.” The original question was what vegetable people were most excited to grow this year. Someone across the room shouts, “Wait, what are collard greens? I mean, what do you do with ‘em?” Someone else laughs and says, “They eat them down South a lot. Cook ‘em up with garlic and a little oil and they’re good to go!” Read more… (…read more…)
