Sustainable West Seattle to debut new garden next weekend, growing food to feed those in need

A day before the West Seattle Bee Garden debuts with a celebration in High Point next Sunday, another new local community garden will debut in Highland Park on Saturday – a section of the new Westcrest Park P-Patch dedicated to growing food for the White Center Food Bank. The “Presto Garden” project is being led by Sustainable West Seattle, incorporating donations from local businesses and organizations listed in this update on the SWS website. Here’s where you come in: Many hands, light work. Be there on Saturday (May 18th) 1-5 pm for the planting party that will help make it happen. Westcrest is at 9000 8th SW (for those not familiar with the park, we’re tracking down specific directions to the planting site, and will add them here).

    Should be a great community project and garden – too bad I can’t be there to help!

    If you’d like to show up for the work party this Saturday at 1 pm, it’s at Westcrest Park. Come to the entrance at 8th and Henderson and go up the road to the right to the parking area. The P-Patch where the garden is going in is right next to the play area at the top of the hill.

    Garden Party!
    Come join us get dirty and feel right about the world and see our technique for a “Presto Garden”
    If you think the hour is getting late and you have been thinking about putting in a garden you will surly be motivated to take one afternoon to get it done. BTW volunteering and helping others, FEELS GREAT!

    Looking forward to this, Interested in how this garden will be layered and planted. A good learning opportunity & way to help the White Center food bank.
