The new gardeners and gardens are at diverse sites across Seattle, ranging from your neighbor’s backyard to the your local food bank to your neighborhood church. The captains fund-raising to support the effort are diverse too, ranging from a real estate agent to a photographer to a film producer to a local fair trade chocolatier to an edible landscape company.
