About

Mission

Down to Earth Community Gardens is a community organization run solely by volunteers in partnership with Municipalities, Conservation Districts, Schools, and other collaborating partners and stakeholders.

Our mission is to provide space and education for people to grow their own food and offer fresh produce to area food banks. We give FREE garden beds, FREE seeds, FREE education, and access to FREE resources to help grow organic produce.

Serving the greater Snohomish, Skagit and King county, we increase visibility by offering free farmers markets, baskets of produce for delivery for seniors, people with disabilities, access to emergency food boxes, an open gate for garden grocers and much more.

In 2018, we grew and gave 64,719 pounds of organic produce, with 382 volunteers giving 3,200 hours of community service!  Our FREE Farmer’s Market was able to serve over 2,000 people with fresh organic produce, education, and resources.

In 2017, Eagle Ridge Community Garden and The Living Lab grew and gave 21,765 lbs of organic produce to local area food banks, taught 343 individuals to grow food and gave 945 hours of community service.
