The Garden at Raab Park in Poulsbo, Washington, was begun in 1997 by the combined efforts of the City of Poulsbo, individual Master Gardeners and service organizations with funding from grant sources.
The continued improvement of the garden and success of the Children’s Program is supported by the work of WSU Master Gardeners and community involvement.
The “Kids Cultivate” summer program is active learning and outdoor fun where kids can water, dig in the dirt, do crafts and learn about different plants, veggies, and garden creatures.
Blueberry Park features 7 acres of walking trails, a picnic shelter, and a playground and was constructed using Low Impact Development techniques.
