The P-Patch Program is the community gardening program of the City of Seattle's Department of Neighborhoods and is open to Seattle residents. Staff partner with volunteers, local non-profit organizations, Seattle Housing Authority, and other agencies to support, develop and manage community gardening in Seattle. Gardeners volunteer to coordinate the tasks and activities in the garden.
P-Patches are an open space resource for all members of the community, not just gardeners, and are places to share love of gardening, cultivate friendships, strengthen neighborhoods, increase self-reliance, wildlife habitat, foster environmental awareness, relieve hunger, improve nutrition, and enjoy recreational and therapeutic opportunities.
The Interbay P-Patch has been around since the mid-1970s, and is still going, and growing, strong.
