We loved seeing our project at the New Holly Youth and Family Garden featured in this video about the Seattle Department of Neighborhood P-Patch Community Garden Program.
This was wonderful project within a Seattle Housing Authority Neighborhood involving many different ethnic minorities. We love the description used in the video: “Inclusion in a P-Patch looks like New Holly Youth and Family Garden…It’s awesome because each neighbor is from a different culture.”
After a robust community engagement process involving multiple languages, Convene redesigned and rebuilt this P-Patch with the help of many community work parties. The garden site is under the powerlines managed by Seattle Public Utilities, and we were able to reuse decommission utility poles from SPU in the garden’s new retaining walls. Keep an eye our them in the video!
