History

At Marra Farm, located in South Park's Marra-Desimone Park, people come to learn about organic produce cultivation, food-related issues, and environmental stewardship. The farm is managed by the South Park Marra Farm Coalition, which includes the City of Seattle P-Patch and Cultivating Communities programs, as well as Solid Ground Lettuce Link and Seattle Tilth's, Youth Garden Works. Independence and self-management are key. We work to cultivate the innate values of community gardening: friendships, community building, self-reliance, neighborhood open-space, environmental awareness, hunger relief, improved nutrition, recreation, gardening education, and therapeutic opportunities.
