COMMUNITY GARDEN

Since 2002, the Magnuson Community Garden Coalition has worked to transform a parking lot and empty field into a functional community garden and neighborhood gathering place. Volunteers from northeast Seattle neighborhoods, community and corporate groups helped make the garden a reality. In 2004 the garden was formally dedicated to the community!

Features
