Do you love to garden but you have no space, Seattle and King County has an answer for you, a good answer, a very good answer. There are plots available through the P-Patch Community Gardening Program, and through the King County Community Garden Program.

The P-Patch program alone oversees 78 P-Patches distributed throughout Seattle on 44.5 acres of land. Community gardeners grow food on 13.5 acres of the land and steward for the public an additional total of 31 acres. Food growing acres directly serve 4,400 gardeners. The program has been running for more than 39 years.

  1. So wonderful to have a program like this. It would be great if more communities did.

  2. I agree. The communities that support each plot are very active. There is a list server for them that provides everything from getting them started to the harvest process. Some of the plots even have waiting lists.

  3. Community gardens are wonderful and I am glad to say that we have a couple of garden for the school kids too.
