Dig Your Garden at Cascade Giving Garden
Alleycat Acres reconnects people, place, and produce with a network of neighborhood run urban farms. In partnership with Friends of Cascade Park, Cascade P-Patch, the Y, and thousands of community volunteers, we transformed this corner of Cascade Park into a vibrant community farm! We welcome volunteers to come visit the garden every Monday evening, and to take home produce in exchange for their help. We are so excited to be growing food with the neighborhood, and distributing produce to Immanuel Community Services food bank, Recover Cafe, and O'rien Center.
We need your help to keep things growing! We have a farm coordinator on site during open hours to guide work and share skills. Depending on the season, you can expect to learn how to:
plant and care for edible vegetables, perennials, flowers, and natives
build healthy soil
identify and remove weeds
We will provide all the tools and gloves, but ask that you dress for the weather and wear sturdy shoes.
We will have water available but encourage you to bring a reusable bottle!
