In partnership with neighborhood volunteers and Seattle Center, Seattle Department of Neighborhoods is developing a new P-Patch community garden on top of the Mercer Garage at 3rd Avenue N and Mercer Street. The project is funded through the 2008 Parks and Green Spaces Levy which dedicated $2 million to P-Patch community garden development. In partnership with community volunteers, the P-Patch Community Gardening Program is supporting 20 new or expanded P-Patch gardens.
