West Seattle weekend scene: Getting greens in the ground at Puget Ridge Edible Park

(WSB photos)

The weekend weather improved just in time for one of the last spotlight events of the day – this afternoon’s planting party at Puget Ridge Edible Park (18th/Brandon – map).

Stu Hennessey (above center, standing) and other community members pitched the plan to Seattle Parks 8+ years ago, and the city bought the site with levy money. We reported on the site’s history back in 2011.

Today, volunteers were planting lettuce today; other greens planted earlier in the year are coming in. You can get involved both with tending PREP and sharing in the harvest – monthly work parties are always the second Sunday this time of year, 4-6 pm, so the next one is Sunday, May 13th – bring tools and seeds if you have them!

    As you can see, this is an entire community effort. So many of our neighbors have gotten to know one another on this project. Thanks WSB for promoting the positive news. There is a lot of this out there.

    All these generous, inspired, and hard-working neighbors are growing mutual care, and enthusiasm for shared projects, on Puget Ridge! Deep gratitude to all.

Sorry, comment time is over.
