About Us.jpg 

 

Nisqually Community Garden works toward Tribal self-sufficiency and overall community, family, and individual health. The Garden creates value for the Tribe by encouraging the active practice of traditional ways of healthy living & eating. The Garden contributes to real improvements in physical, spiritual, mental, and emotional health. We grow and distribute food, medicinal plants, and body care products to Tribal members and community members. We also coordinate classes and workshops so that people can build skills in growing, harvesting, and preparing their own foods and medicines. 

 

We tend 5 acres of vegetables, berries, traditional plants, and fruit trees. All produce is distributed directly to Nisqually Tribal members & community members. We also host youth field trips, provide job training to tribal members through Nisqually Workforce Development and SPIPA Vocational Rehab, preserve foods & medicines, put on annual events, and partner with many other programs and departments.
