The Foundation is the major contributor, supporter and sustainer of three Thurston County Demonstration Gardens – one at the Olympia Farmers’ Market; one at Yauger Park on Olympia’s Westside, and one at the Thurston County Solid Waste Transfer Station. We also help fund several clinics that provide gardening information to the public in Thurston County.
