Greenwood Station P-Patch

Greenwood Station P-Patch went from a dream to a reality in Greenwood Park, after several years of planning by volunteers, under the aegis of Vision Greenwood Park, consisting of volunteers who gathered to help plan a revised version of the park including a several new contiguous plots to the original design. 

Along with the Garden, 2012 saw the creation of the Sports Court across form the King County N Seattle Boys and Girls Club as well, thanks to assistance from many local donors as well as various grants from the City and County.

Greenwood Station P-Patch, location at the end of the original Inter Urban Trolley Line, has 42 garden plots, some deliberately dedicated to the Greenwood Food Bank and some for the Greenwood Senior Center, which provides hot lunches to local seniors. We also have a strawberry plot and an herb plot that anyone may uses, and a pollinator sidewalk strip on the City Right-Of-Way as well as in the garden along the S fence. We have an Art fence and entry gate, with transportation as a theme, along the Fremont Ave Side. On the South side of the garden we have a double hog wire fence with branch debris inside, making an effective shield between the neighboring lot and the garden.
