WIC Community Garden

Established in May 2013 the Johnson County WIC Community Garden and Orchard aims to educate, empower and feed the community through its 1/4 acre fruit and vegetable farm space situated between the Health Department and Extension Office in Olathe (11875 S Sunset Dr, Olathe, KS 66061).

The garden is managed by K-State Extension in partnership with Johnson County Dept. of Health and Environment with volunteer support from county employees, community members and WIC families who donate their time weekly to seed, hoe, prune, stake, mulch, harvest and more depending on the season. 

Volunteers are welcome every Tuesday morning 8am-11am April thru October. Drop-ins are welcome but registeration for workdays is encouraged and can be done by clicking this link.

Volunteering at the garden is a great way to learn about growing food, socialize with others, get physical activity and contribute to a good cause. No special equipment required, tools are supplied but it's recommended that participants bring closed-toe shoes, a bottle of water, sunscreen, and their favorite pair of gardening gloves.
