Colfax Community Garden nears peak for 2018 season


September 6, 2018

The Peace Lutheran Church community garden is approaching its top picking time in its sixth summer in operation. So far in 2018, the garden has produced 217 pounds of produce donated weekly to the Colfax Food Pantry and Pullman’s Community Action Center.

The garden is part-private and part-church activity, as Peace Lutheran members tend to plants in half of the 20 wooden beds and four tractor tires.

The church picked 45 pounds of tomatoes last week.

“It’s really starting to produce,” said Kent Miller, coordinator. “Mid-August through September is the peak time for picking.”
