- Celebrate with us as we thank God for the wonderful harvests He provides; as we pass along to other organizations on the front lines of caring for people in need.
- Celebrate with us as we see the gardeners become excited about their experiences.
- Celebrate with us as we have received so much from so many generous individuals, organizations and businesses.
- Celebrate with the people who have given so much as they experience the intrinsic rewards that come from making a difference in our community.
Volunteers welcome and invited to help get the 2023 garden up and running.
Ways you can be involved
March will be a great time to get out with our weed trimmers to take down the early weeds.
We have a “Skeleton ???” weed on the property. We need to stay ahead of this weed, you could help.
The lower “Food Bank” rows need early work and then all season long maintenance .
Digging out water faucet feed lines to better attach them to boxes.
Spreading card board and wood chips between the boxes.
Assemble Trellis Frames.
Friends of the Garden
“Friends of the Garden” are people who enjoy working in the garden in a particular way that is meaningful to both them and the garden. These last three seasons friends of the garden made a huge impact throughout the garden. Read more about being a friend of the garden on Page Two.
A Special Thank You to Gary M. For 13 seasons Gary has maintained our irrigation system. He installed it to begin with, and each season he turns on the water and then blows out the system before winter. He has been a source of encouragement and advice.
The PPCG was started the spring of 2010 by Millwood Community Presbyterian Church (MCPC) and several other generous contributors. See our start up page for a list of those sponsors. We are thankful for 10 seasons of MCPC’s sponsorship which ended mid-way through the 2019 season.
Millwood Community Association brought the PPCG under their umbrella in 2020 believing the garden to be a positive contributor to the Millwood / Spokane Valley area. If you have the ability and desire to support the PPCG with a charitable donation, then please use the contact us link below to get a conversation started.
