2018 gardening season to start


February 1, 2018

The Wahkiakum Community Garden, located in Erickson Park on Columbia Street in Cathlamet, is revving up for the 2018 garden season so get your plot request in!

To paraphrase an old Burma Shave sign:

“Spring has sprung, the weeds are riz, where last year’s, garden iz.”

The gardening catalogs have been received for rainy day reading and it's time for Wahkiakum community gardeners to plan for the 2018 gardening season.

There are a few vacant plots available for persons who would like to do their own veggie gardening.

If you are interested in a garden plot contact Joyce, phone (360) 430-3968 or email

Those who want the garden plots they used last season need to request those plots ASAP. The use of each plot is free for the season, but you must be involved in getting the plot prepared for use and keep it weeded.

There will be a garden work party on Saturday, March 3, starting about 10 a.m. Come help prepare the gardens. You can plant peas, onions, and other early crops as soon as soil can be worked.
