The Quimper Grange Garden, located at the Corner of Sheridan and Corona Streets in Port Townsend, has generously donated the use of their land to be farmed for the food bank. In the spring of 2014 several volunteers helped to expand this garden space making room for even more produce to be grown and harvested.
2017 was a spectacular success! This location donated more than a literal ton of fresh produce to the food bank.
In 2018 we were able, with your help, to continue these achievements! We donated over 3,000 lbs. of produce through the volunteers who put in over 525 hours of work at the garden.
Although 2019 was not as productive, produce wise, as last year, we harvested over 2600 lbs. of produce. Volunteer hours topped previous years with a whopping 960+ hours of work.
2020 has see some rather drastic challenges for all of us. Strict protocols have been put in place at the Quimper Grange Garden to protect our volunteers as well as those who will be receiving our produce. Requirements for access to the garden are posted on all entrance points.

Our volunteers contribute in various ways. On the left JJ and Bill stand behind the cardboard stacking futon that they designed. Susan holds a beautiful, freshly picked and assembled floral bouquet and Ken displays Quimper Grange Garden grown radishes that he planted and harvested. Thanks to volunteers such as these our garden is a thriving contributor to the community. Please join us!
