Community Programs

Community programs can increase the number of people that walk by improving the pedestrian environment and promoting equitable investment in neighborhoods. There are a number of programs in Seattle that serve these functions.

The Department of Neighborhoods P-Patch Program, in conjunction with the not-for-profit P-Patch Trust, provides organic community garden space for residents of 70 Seattle neighborhoods. The community-based areas of the P-Patch Program are community gardening, market gardening, youth gardening, and community food security. These programs serve all citizens of Seattle with an emphasis on low-income, immigrant populations, and youth. The community gardens offer 2,500 plots serving more than 6,000 urban gardeners on 23 acres of land.

The City of Seattles Urban Forest Management Plan asks everyone in Seattle to become better tree stewards, including the City itself. City departments will review their tree care policies and update them if necessary to current best management practices. As part of that effort, the Department of Planning and Development is reviewing and revising the Citys tree protection and replacement regulations for private property.
