RainCoast Food Bank Garden

Visit Website

Constructed and farmed by volunteers, the 3500 sq. ft. Food Bank Garden is housed at RainCoast Farms. It incorporates irrigated raised or row beds with vertical, trellised, pot grown plants, and an extensive composting center. The Food Bank Garden also has 900 sq. ft. of greenhouse space growing tomatoes and peppers using Dick Schneider’s proven techniques. His orchid house is also open for viewing. The gardens produce carrots, potatoes, beets, chard, beans, cucumbers, Brussel sprouts, alliums, and mixed greens along with the greenhouse offerings. Crops are harvested on Tuesday for delivery to the Tri-Area Food Bank. (NOTE: RainCoast Farm is NOT open to in-person visitation at this time.)
