FOLLOWUP: Longfellow Creek P-Patch gardeners’ gratitude

(WSB photo, Thursday afternoon)

Two days after another fire ravaged the shed at Longfellow Creek P-Patch, the gardeners are grateful – to the community, for donations that will enable them to keep growing in a garden that also gives back, with food-bank donations. Here’s the update from Christina:

Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of the West Seattle community, we now have all the tools and equipment we need for the upcoming season. West Seattle Blog readers are truly amazing! We are still accepting monetary donations to help us rebuild our shed. If readers want to help us rebuild, they can donate online at and designate that the donation is for “Longfellow Creek” P-Patch. We are also working with Seattle Police to help prevent future incidents of arson.

They’re storing tools and equipment offsite in the meantime.

    Any follow up from SPD re: the suspect(s) and what else they’re doing to help nab them?

    Since this last fire many more trees have been cut down and many of the trees left standing have been chopping into. He appears to still be very active in the green space

      Imagine the outcry for justice if he were cutting down the trees to improve his view.  I hope the damage stops happening soon. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
