- Thurston County Community Gardens: www.thurstoncommunitygardens.org
Description: Thurston County Public Health & Social Services works with local partners to increase access to healthy foods throughout the county. Improved access to healthful foods such as fruits and vegetables improves the consumption of them, in turn decreasing the risk of chronic disease. Community gardens contribute to the increased access to and consumption of fruits and vegetables (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention).
