Getting a Garden Plot

New garden plots are assigned based on involvement. While the City provides support, new gardens are built by the community. Neighbors come together to envision, design, and eventually construct a unique garden that meets their needs and reflects their neighborhood identity. Thus, community commitment through volunteering is the primary factor in assigning plots in a new garden. If you are interested in getting a plot join the Interest List and please see How Plots are Assigned.


In 2009 the City of Seattle began work on covering the West Seattle Reservoir as part of an ongoing effort to secure Seattle's water supply. As with many of Seattle's reservoir projects, the city added an additional 20 acres of green space. To take advantage of this new space Westcrest Park is getting a substantial makeover, with design and construction funding from the 2008 Parks and Green Space Levy. The new design creates some garden space and P-Patch is currently ramping up to develop a new P-Patch at Westcrest in the coming year in conjunction with the larger Westcrest redevelopment project.
