Whether you have a backyard garden, P-Patch, or container garden, Garden Helpers are mentors who can help you get started on a garden, choose the right plants, and answer all of your questions about growing your own vegetables.

If you live in West Seattle or White Center and would like help from a Garden Helpers volunteer, call us at (206) 762-0604 or send us an e-mail at For more information, here are the Garden Helpers Frequently Asked Questions>. This program is funded by a grant from the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods.

    This sounds so interesting! I have a small garden and often wonder if I have things in the correct places best for them.
    My basil is really suffering right now.

    Way too early to have basil plants out – especially with our cooler than normal weather. Buy/start new plants and keep indoors for a few weeks – harden them up by putting out during the day but bring in at night until temps are in upper 50’s at least.

    Grow indoors with hydroponics! You can harvest whatever you want, all year round! – :)
