Who We Are
The mission of the Community Garden Alliance is to help families in Spokane overcome food insecurities.
We accomplish this mission by growing food at local community gardens and farm plots. We distribute the produce that we grow, free of charge, to people in need in our area.
We grew over 2,000 pounds of vegetables and provided more than 20 families and transitional housing residents with weekly deliveries of fresh, organic produce at no charge.
We built two additional raised beds at Polly Judd and a 1,000 square foot garden at the Finch Arboretum. We grew 1,600 pounds of vegetables as well as provided 16 families and transitional housing residents with weekly deliveries of fresh, organic produce at no charge.
We built four raised beds at Polly Judd Park, grew over 600 pounds of vegetables and provided 10 transitional housing residents with weekly deliveries of fresh, organic produce at no charge.
I am proud to call Spokane my home. I am fortunate to have close family and friends here and love exploring the natural area. My family heritage has roots in farming and I always had a passion to connect people to the land, so I am grateful to have joined the Spokane Community Garden Alliance.
SCGA provides a way to contribute to the local community, through volunteering and collaborating with likeminded individuals, who share enthusiasm for the environment and growing organic produce. Our mission is to build teamwork and connection to nature in the garden, that supplies food for local families in need, at no cost.
Beyond the garden, I enjoy the outdoors and activities like paddle boarding, hiking, biking, rock climbing, concerts and travel. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share and I look forward to meeting you. Please reach out, if you want to get involved with the garden.
I am a single mother of three . Why should that matter to you? Because the same passion I have for my children in making sure they are cared for is the same passion I have for my friends, neighbors and community. I would do anything for a person in need and I do this by taking care of the Finch Arboretum garden. Tending, harvesting and delivering fresh, free produce. I am able to spread love and compassion to those in need.
I’ve lived in Spokane since early 2016. My passions involve supporting communities through food outreach and support. I have previously volunteered with 2nd Harvest and recently joined the SCGA team! I enjoy any time spent outdoors, which currently includes: camping, paddle boarding, riding bikes and spending time with my family.
Good food is the foundation for a healthy life, and I want to help create access to both.
