The East Rec Community Garden exists to:

Provide a safe space for people to grow, eat, and share produce

Foster wellness (body, mind, spirit) through gardening & programming

To celebrate diversity, creativity, and sustainability.

Plus, thanks to a partnership with WSU, the East Recreation Center is now a host site for the Winona Seed Library! The WSU Seed Bank and Library strives to educate, exchange, and preserve seeds for the Winona community, inspiring awareness and action on food equity, insecurity, and biodiversity. A goal of the library is to give all people access to healthy, high-quality produce, regardless of socioeconomic class. Anyone may check out seeds for free from the library during East Rec open hours!
