You can grow your own food. We can help.

Magnuson Childrens Garden Universal Access Project

Our project is to transform an existing, in-ground, high-maintenance/weed-infested 300 sq ft food garden plot into a universally-accessible, raised-bed, low-maintenance garden. We plan to do this by installing multiple steel stock troughs to use as raised bed container gardens, add cloches to enable food to be grown from early spring to late fall, and a drip irigation system to enable our crops to thrive and still have low-water-use. Our goal is to greatly increase the amount of food grown by the hundreds of children and adults who participate in Magnuson Children's Garden existing gardening and nutrition programs, and to increase the capacity and scope of our programs to include teaching children and adults of all ages and abilities, and to enable new community partnerships and programs to flourish.
