Mission

Pullman Community Garden at Koppel Farm is volunteer-run, non-profit organization committed to building a sense of community through preservation and enhancement of our natural, agricultural and cultural heritage in Pullman and the Palouse

History

Pullman Community Garden (formerly known as The Greystone Foundation) is a not-for-profit civic organization originally formed in 1988 to preserve the historic Greystone Church on College Hill in Pullman. The Romanesque style Presbyterian church was designed and built by local architect and businessman, William Swain, in 1914.

The church is currently owned by another party and has recently been remodeled as an apartment complex.

Koppel Farm began as a location promoting organic gardening and community spirit. The name was officially changed to Pullman Community Garden in 2002.

Donations are always welcome
