The Washington MO Community Garden (WMCG), is located on the grounds of Peace Lutheran Church in Washington, MO. Through the generous donation of use of land from Peace Lutheran Church, the garden began as a FCMG Intern project (2018), & its construction was made possible through the assist of FCMG’s & life long gardeners in 2019. Today, the garden is comprised of 12 plots for lease to the community @ $25.00/growing season, and a large bonus bed where crops are grown and donated to a local food pantry & local community owned restaurants. In 2022, over 650 pounds of produce was donated! The garden strives to complete annual quality initiatives and has set amazing annual track records. In 2021, WMCG was awarded America In Bloom’s Best Community Award, 2022 work included the installation of a drip irigation & 3 tier compost system. We have so much to tell you & we welcome FCMG participation to help maintain & grow this wonderful garden! A little bit about the garden:
WMCG’s Mission is to enrich the lives of our community through sustainable urban agriculture. Through reciprocal partnerships, WMCG strives to reach gardeners and would-be gardeners of all ages & abilities to work alongside the organization to build community through urban agriculture.
– Our Vision: Our vision is to see people of all backgrounds come together to experience a deep connection with fresh garden food, the land and each other, while using shared knowledge, skills, and abilities with respect to the art and science of gardening. We look to the community for support and we welcome all ideas.
