To sign up for a P-Patch garden plot, click here. You should also review the P-Patch Assignment Guidelines. Interest lists are only one tool staff use to assign open spaces.

  • Individuals are placed on the requested list/s by date of first request.
  • Individuals must be City of Seattle residents. Exceptions are made for those non-Seattle residents who live near gardens on the edge of the city limits; however, City of Seattle residents have priority. No exceptions are made for gardens located on Department of Parks and Recreation property.
  • Individuals may request to be placed on up to two (2) P-Patch interest lists, listing them in order of preference.
  • Individuals on interest lists are contacted every fall for continued interest. If a potential P-Patch gardener does not reply, they will be removed from the interest lists. Once removed, gardeners have one year to request reinstatement at their original date.
  • Individuals will only be assigned space at one P-Patch.
  • Plots cannot automatically be transferred to co-gardeners. To become the assigned gardener, a co-gardener must have gardened long enough that they would have been assigned a plot had they been on the interest list.
