The Blatchley Community Garden was closed in the spring of 2016, and since then Sitka hasn’t had a true community garden.

Now, Transition Sitka and the Sitka Local Foods Network are working with the city, tribe, and other organizations on plans for not one but TWO new community gardens.

  • The Osprey Street garden will be located near the Vilandre ball field, near the corner of Halibut Point Road and Osprey Street intersection.
  • The Jarvis Street garden will be located at the top of Jarvis Street next to where the Sitka Homeless Coalition is building a tiny house village for the unhoused in Sitka.
  • Both sites are located on city property, and will feature 50 or more 10-foot-by-20-foot plots in each garden.

Joel Hanson, who is with Transition Sitka and on the board of the Sitka Local Foods Network, is coordinating the project.
