Meaningful endeavors can only happen with the support of the people who make up the community. Over the years, our dedicated and incredibly generous business owners and community members have helped build the foundation our garden rests on today. These contributions have brought the Gathering Garden beyond the pale of a dilapidated logging yard to the vibrant learning and growing space we enjoy today.
