Catalyst Food Bank Garden

Something wonderful is happening at 8th and Harvard in Shelton.  


A lot is happening at 8th and Harvard. It’s a busy place, and we’d love it if you came to visit.

Visiting Catalyst Food Bank Garden

Catalyst Demonstration Garden is open from April to October. If you would like to visit, Master Gardeners are there on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 9 am to noon. We are located at 8th and Harvard in Shelton. To arrange a group visit, call or email the WSU Extension Office (see contact information above).  COVID restrictions have lifted but some may still be in place.

Garden Exhibits

Within the food bank garden we have a Learning Garden with educational garden exhibits. 


We’re happy to share information on any of these exhibits with you. 

Nursery Garden

The idea of possibly creating a nursery garden has materialized.  We are currently working out plans and details as our current plant inventory has been sold or is being ready to be sold in the 2023 upcoming plant sale.

Our dream is to expand, open to the public and demonstrate and educate around native and perennial gardening.  

Stay tuned!
