Next work party: AUGUST WORK PARTY RESCHEDULED, DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED
A new community garden is located at the Center of the Universe!
Fremont now has a P-Patch community garden and new park space. The Troll’s Knoll P-Patch is situated on the northwest side of the Aurora Avenue Bridge, flanking the west side of the Fremont Troll. Currently, it has 29 garden plots.
This garden exists thanks to the 2008 Parks Levy Opportunity Fund and was developed with the support of volunteers, a City of Seattle Department of Neighborhoods Neighborhood Matching Fund grant, Skanska, and Perkins + Will.
Please make sure you log all of your volunteer hours in this online form, because gardeners are required to contribute eight hours of service to the garden at large each year.
How can you get a plot?
Read about how the interest list works [PDF]. You are also welcome to volunteer as you wait for a plot.
Where do we donate produce?
Produce from our Giving Garden plots is donated to FamilyWorks Food Bank in Wallingford (1501 N. 45th St.) and any other gardeners are welcome to donate excess veggies and fruit as well. Their preferred drop-off times are Tuesdays 12-2 p.m., Thursdays 9 a.m.-3 p.m., and Fridays 8 a.m.-12 p.m. When you donate, ask them to weigh the produce so we can report how much our P-Patch has donated.
When is the next work party?
Check our calendar.
