Help design West Seattle’s next P-Patch: Meetings announced

(WSB file photo of P-Patch site)
Almost two years after first word the empty city-owned lot at 34th and Barton (map) might become a P-Patch, it’s finally close to reality. Barton P-Patch Outreach Committee Chair Terri Lindow just sent word of your chance to help design it:

Feb. 12th & March 1st

WHAT: You are invited to participate in creating a new P-Patch community garden at Barton Street and 34th Avenue SW (near Tony’s Produce)

Please attend these meetings to learn more about the new neighborhood project and participate in the design process.
At this first meeting we’ll start with big ideas and end up with a schematic design. Barker Landscape Architects will facilitate the public workshops to design the garden that best suits the Barton P-Patch community. Each session will build on the last so please try to attend all three.

WHEN: Meeting 1: Saturday, Feb. 12th 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm Idea Generation and Preferences
Meeting 2: Tuesday, March 1: 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm Refine Alternative Plans
Meeting 3: To Be Announced

WHERE: The Southwest Community Center, 2801 SW Thistle St. Seattle, 91826

Interested? Questions? Call or email Randee at or 206-218-3320.

    This is at the end of our block and we can’t wait for a community garden! Our little girl (now 5 yo) has grown up running to “Mr. Tree” (the beautiful birch tree) and giving him hugs and gifts of twigs and such. I hope I can attend these meetings (Feb. 12th is a busy day for me).

    All I know is I really hope they honor Mr. Tree and give him a place of importance.

    Thanks for the info!!! :-)
