Quimper Grange Garden

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.

  1. Hello there, my name is Dena Turner, I live a few houses down from the Grange 1255 32 street. Little grey house with a double lot. I just got permission from the homeowner my wish to put in a Secret Healing Widow Garden in the empty side yard. She Loves the idea. She even said I could have chickens and ducks. I want to utilize this space as a place that other women like myself can build community through gardening and other activities here. Is there someone that I can talk to about this?

    • Ms Turner,
      Thank you for your interest in building community through gardening, etc. I’ve copied the email addresses from above. These folks are the decision makers for the garden and can answer your questions.
