The community learning garden at McAuliffe Park features permaculture principles, annual vegetables grown with organic practices, a demonstration rain garden and cistern, and other water and resource conservation features built and maintained as part of Tilth Alliance’s Soil and Water Stewardship program.
McAuliffe Park is a historic farm site, with mature orchard trees, historic buildings, a community garden P-Patch and an urban forest. Partners at the site include the City of Kirkland, the Green Kirkland Partnership and CityFruit.
This garden is on the ancestral lands of the Coast Salish people. It is stewarded by community volunteers, students and Tilth Alliance gardeners. Our focus is on encouraging vibrant garden ecosystems, relationships, and joy in growing and sharing food.
Volunteer at McAuliffe Park
Volunteering is a great to get involved with Tilth Alliance! During weekly work parties, small groups of Tilth Alliance volunteers tend to annual vegetable crops and perennial plantings, learning how to grow food, harvest rainwater and conserve water and other resources.
