WIC Community Garden

Johnson County Government is committed to improving the health of all Johnson County residents by improving access to healthy foods in the community. We strive to achieve this goal through administering a WIC (Women, Infants and Children) program and the WIC Community Garden. The WIC Community Garden educates, empowers and feeds the clients in the Kansas WIC program, thereby creating a healthier community. Click here to view a video about the community garden.

This project is in need of community volunteers. Gardeners of all experience levels are welcome to volunteer. If you would like to volunteer in the WIC Community Garden fill out the form below. All Kansas WIC clients are encouraged to volunteer in the garden. WIC clients who volunteer in the garden will have first priority to the produce that is harvested from the garden. All other produce will be made available at the Olathe WIC office. WIC volunteers will not only have access to freshly harvested produce, but will also learn skills to grow vegetables in their own gardens and feed their families for years to come.

WIC Community Garden Volunteer Sign-Up

Do you enjoy gardening? Want to learn how to grow your own fresh fruits and vegetables? Do you like to help people in our community? Then we need YOU to volunteer in the WIC Community Garden. Volunteers are needed every Tuesday from 7:30-9:30 a.m. during the growing season (April-October). All produce harvested from the garden will go to WIC families in Johnson County. The garden is located at 11875 S. Sunset Drive in Olathe (north side of the Health Services Building).

We will only contact you in case of cancellation or when we have important WIC Garden information for volunteers.
