Welcome Center Host
Our host for the Manette Edible Garden Tour welcome center this year and last is the New Life Assembly.Their community garden, which is in its first year, exists to grow organic produce for Kitsap Rescue Mission to use in the 600 meals it serves weekly. The garden is in a 60'X20' fenced and paved area.New Life strives to use every square foot to grow produce for the Kitsap Rescue Mission. New Life believes people in need to should enjoy quality produce and the health benefits that come from eating healthfully. The New Life Assembly is an important and active part of the Manette neighborhood.
Recalling the self-sufficiency of previous generations who planted Victory Gardens, Manette edible gardeners are opening their gardens to their neighbors to show techniques for growing food in small urban spaces. Come see many approaches to growing fresh food year round and to restoring the health of your family, your land and the Puget Sound. The tour is a great opportunity for Manette residents to get to know their neighbors, and for other Kitsap residents to get to know Manette. The gardeners page will tell you who will be on the tour, and what types of urban gardening they are up to. The tour is a great way to see different techniques in practice as well as learn about animal husbandry in the city.
