West Seattle scenes: Kenney centennial; P-Patch kid gardeners

October 28, 2009 at 8:18 pm | In Gardening, The Kenney, West Seattle news | 1 Comment

At The Kenney‘s celebration this afternoon of the 100th anniversary of its grand opening, Kaia Hlavacek portrayed the senior-living center’s co-founder Jessie Kenney, in turn-of-the-20th-century garb. Meantime, just blocks away, the Solstice Park P-Patch hosted young gardeners and their adult assistants:

A group of students from the Fauntleroy Children’s Center before-and-after-school-care program – headquartered at the old schoolhouse – have a plot at the P-Patch where they are growing produce to donate to food-bank clients. Today, they were “winterizing” the plot, as FCC’s Kim Sheridan put it – with the help of a generous donation of soil-amending material from Burien Bark.

  1. Thanks to the other p-patch people who helped out our kids from FCC – it was very kind of you to help and let them have some of your brocolli!
