We're so glad you noticed our garden! Known as the We Dig Fircrest Presbyterian Church Community Garden, our garden community is made up of congregants of Fircrest Presbyterian Church, volunteer Master Gardeners and local volunteers from the community. We donate all our produce to the Families Unlimited Network (FUN) Food Bank, which serves over 41,000 people annually in the University Place/Pierce County area. We have no individual plots. Since 2018 our unique garden partnership has become a stable relationship that positively supports the FPC congregation, community partners, and the community as a whole.
Our regular gardening time is Saturdays from 9 am until 12 pm. We would love to have your help! Below are some additional ways that you can help the garden:
You can give money to help support the garden. Make out a check to Fircrest Presbyterian Church, note Community Garden in the memo line, and mail to FPC, 1250 Emerson St., Fircrest, WA 98466.
Here is our current "Wish List" of needs:
Help with maintaining our social media presence on Facebook and on our website.
An official photographer who can capture images of the garden throughout the year.
Someone to interface with the Families Unlimited Network food bank, helping us maintain communications and informing us of the needs of people experiencing food insecurity.
A volunteer coordinator.
A marketing person.
If you would like to help in any of these ways, email Julie at firstname.lastname@example.org, and she will get you connected!
