Spokane Community Gardens is a group that existed in Spokane 20+ years ago.

Now, with the help of people like Spokane's favorite gardener, Pat Munts and long-time community gardens organizer Jon Lossing, coupled with the recently rekindled interest in community gardens across the nation, the Spokane Community Gardens website is here to once again serve Spokane's community gardens and gardeners.

Spokane Community Gardens is all volunteer. Our primary goal is connecting volunteers and potential gardeners to Community Gardens and resources. We also focus on networking with people like you, groups like the Spokane Urban Agriculture Network, and anyone interested in Spokane's gardening scene and our regional food system. New features will be added to the website to facilitate sharing, both on-line and face-to-face, among the diverse, food-centric people who call the Spokane region home.

Please enjoy browsing the site. Check back often as improvements will continue. Also follow Spokane Community Gardens on Facebook.

If you have an immediate question, please contact us through our website contact form.
