Sunset Community Garden (formerly WIC Garden)
Founded in 2013, the Sunset Community Garden educates and feeds the community through its quarter-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 Department 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.
Volunteer with us!
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.
Work days are on Tuesday based on the time of year and weather patterns. All times are subject to change based on weather patterns. Please contact the office to confirm work times. Work days will be cancelled in case of inclement weather
