P-Patch Turns 40 years old
Welcome to P-Patch community gardening. I hope you enjoy our page as much as we do. As you’ll note in the corner, this year we celebrate an anniversary. Forty years ago a group of neighborhood activists and a city council member decided that fallow farmland in the middle of the city should stay as farmland. Thus was born the P-Patch Community Gardening Program, with the “P” commemorating the Picardo Family who farm became this first P-Patch. Forty years on and 82 gardens later P-Patch is celebrating with an invitation to the Community Gardening World to come celebrate with us. In August 8-12, Seattle will host the American Community Gardening Association and community gardeners from around the world. Watch that website to learn more about the conference.
