COMMUNITY GARDENING PROGRAM
THE INTEREST LIST WORKS
To sign up for a P-Patch garden plot, click here. You should also review the Plog Assignment Guidelines. Iinterest lists are only one tool staff use to assign open spaces.
- Individuals are placed on the requested interest lists 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 wait and interest lists, listing them in order of preference.
- Gardeners 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 lists. Once removed, gardeners have one year to request reinstatement at their original date.
- Gardeners 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 wait or interest list.
- In P-Patches where there are no individual plots but a "collective" of folks gardening together, membership will be offered to both people on the lists and folks who begin direct involvement with the collective.
