Shark Garden was started in 2015 in an undeveloped lot adjacent to New Start High School, where a summer program allows students to earn high school credit by combining math curriculum with landscaping/gardening lessons. Now New Start Community Garden is home to 53 community garden plots (including 20 which are ADA accessible), a greenhouse, berry and fruit forest and an outdoor teaching space.

New Start Garden-Raised Beds/Imported Soil A soil test of the native soil showed low organic matter and a low CEC (Cation Exchange Capacity).  With the assistance of community volunteers, raised beds and imported soil were implemented at New Start Community Garden. Have you had your soil tested?  KCD offers 5 FREE soil tests to qualified King County residents (visit KCD's website for details).
