Ovenell Park Community Garden

The Ovenell Park Public Farm is a volunteer-run vegetable garden situated at 10521 Saratoga Dr, Stanwood, WA 98292. The project is set to commence in the Spring of 2024. The primary objective is to convert one acre of a former dairy farm into a communal vegetable garden, providing a space for volunteers to learn the complete process of cultivating fruits, vegetables, and flowers, from seeding to harvest. The produce cultivated on-site will be distributed to members of the Stanwood Camano community facing food insecurity, facilitated through our partnership with the Stanwood Camano Food Bank.

We also plan to restore the wetland located at the park with the help of the Stiliguamish tribe of Indians as well as the Snohomish county conservation district.

Project Summary

Expected start date: Q1 2024

The parcel adjacent to the Stanwood United Methodist Church presents an exceptional opportunity for a community garden space. It has access to water, morning and afternoon sun, and is in close proximity to many residences. The garden will serve as a community gathering space where residents have the opportunity to learn how to grow fruits, vegetables, and flowers.


The space will also provide the Stanwood Camano Food Bank with fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables. Classes on how to grow a garden will be provided once a week for all to enjoy. Residents of the Stanwood-Camano community will have the opportunity to rent a plot of a raised garden bed or accessible bed to grow their own food.
