About The Garden

Wenatchee River Institute welcomes new and experienced gardeners alike who seek opportunities to share garden space, celebrate community, and foster green thumb wisdom to join the E. Lorene Young Community Garden. Click here for more history about the garden!

  • Plots are available each season first to returning gardeners then to new gardeners on a first come, first serve basis.

WRI can offer financial assistance for a portion of the bed rental fees. There is a scholarship fund of donations (primarily from other gardeners) for the purpose of assisting others who cannot afford the full cost of a plot. Please fill out our Financial Access Form.
