Final design meeting set for the new Horiuchi P-Patch community garden
Community is invited to meeting on November 15

The final design meeting for the new Horiuchi P-Patch community garden will be held on Thursday, November 15 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Yesler Community Center (917 East Yesler Way). Community members from the Yesler Terrace and First Hill neighborhoods are invited to see the final design and provide input. There will be food and children's activities available.

Funded by Seattle Housing Authority with assistance from the HUD Choice Neighborhoods Initiative, the new community garden will provide a place for community members to grow fresh organic food and connect with neighbors. The legacy of the park’s namesake, the late artist Paul Horiuchi, will be honored throughout the design and construction of the community garden through artistic elements and historical context of his work.

When complete, the Horiuchi P-Patch community garden will be managed by the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods P-Patch Community Gardening Program.

For more information about the meeting or the garden, contact Nate Moxley at moxnate@gmail.com or 206-733-9586.

The P-Patch Community Gardening Program, in conjunction with the nonprofit P-Patch Trust, oversees 78 P-Patches located throughout the city. These gardens are gathering places where Seattle neighbors strengthen community connections and steward—plan, plant, and maintain—a piece of open space for everyone to enjoy.
