The WSU Chelan County Master Gardeners began developing this Community Education Garden in 2010. The garden is located at 1100 North Western Avenue in Wenatchee. It is an outdoor learning environment for demonstrating and teaching sustainable gardening practices. In 2021, you can usually find Master Gardeners working here Friday mornings.

Upper Valley Mend's Community Harvest gleaning program mobilizes volunteers to harvest excess or unmarketable produce from local farms, orchards, and backyards. They distribute these fresh, local fruits and vegetables to emergency food providers in Chelan and Douglas counties, including their own Community Cupboard.
