Our mission at Summit Community Gardens is to inspire, empower and educate people on the importance of gardening and provide them with the knowledge and resources to be successful, conscientious gardeners.

Listen to Doug, our board member and resident beekeeper, talk about bees on This Green Earth.

Listen to Doug Fryer, our board member and resident beekeeper, talk about the importance of honey bees on KPCW’s This Green Earth.

A year ago we asked the local community what they wanted in a community garden. What we heard from you has guided our program to new heights in 2015 with a focus on garden education along with providing a place for people to meet up and start their own garden.

With this new perspective we have evolved the Summit Community Gardens program to include:

– educational classes for kids and adults

– garden plots the community can rent

– a gathering place where people can appreciate and learn about a beautiful garden space

And this inspired us to build a new garden (in conjunction with Basin Recreation) that will be a community destination for education, recreation and leisure. We hope to have the new garden up and running by summer 2015. Learn more about it here.

Classes start in mid June and will be held at an alternate location until the garden is functional. You can sign up for classes below or click here for the schedule.

Each participant will take home a framed art piece to hang on the wall.
