The Winnemucca Community Garden (WCG) is a nonprofit organization established in 2003. Our mission is to strengthen community relationships, foster environmental stewardship, and demonstrate horticultural principles. Winnemucca is located in the high desert of northern Nevada. In 2007 the garden became a partner agency of the United Way of the Great Basin.
The garden is situated on a 2.5-acre allotment of land donated by the City of Winnemucca, which donates all of the water, too. One half of the garden contains individual plots for community members to adopt and garden in, while the other half includes a water feature, butterfly garden, and native plant landscaping. A greenhouse and composting center are available for community use. The garden is located within the city limits in a residential area. One elementary school is located directly across the street. Educators use the garden as an outdoor classroom to expand upon Science, Math, and nutrition curriculum. Students of all ages learn through hands-on gardening, school programs, special events, and specialized workshops. The garden hosts a Farmers Market in collaboration with the local Food Bank and also sponsors the Plant a Row for the Hungry campaign to help make fresh produce available to those in need in our community.
