How it works

HOURS OF OPERATION:

DAILY from dawn until dusk

Our U-Pick gardens are a resource for our community to access fresh, organic produce. The gardens are supported with donations and offer a diverse array of certified organic vegetables on a seasonal basis.

How it works:

U-pick kiosk is located outside the main office door. Here you will find maps of the garden, info on what is ready for harvest and you can use our sanitation station and pick up a bag to use for harvest. 

When you are done harvesting, please return to the kiosk to weigh your items and record them in our records sheet. If you choose to leave a donation you can do so in the provided envelopes

There are three areas where you can pick: the Front Garden, the High Tunnel, and the Hugelkultur. After harvesting, you will weigh your produce and record what you picked at the self-serve U-Pick kiosk located near the Front Garden. Please check-in at the kiosk when you arrive to read more detailed information. 

Donations are welcome! Donations for produce from the U-Pick Garden help cover costs of production and enable us to provide low-cost educational programs to all members of the community. We accept cash and check; information on how you can donate online will be available on your visit. 

Please wear a mask in the U-Pick garden, make use of sanitation stations, and be respectful of social distancing when others are present. We encourage you to bring your own reusable bags or containers. 

If you would like to visit the U-Pick garden on a different day, please email Sophie at americorps2@pnwsalmoncenter.org or call 360-275-3575 ext.131
