Greg's Garden P-Patch Donation Garden

Greg’s Garden P-Patch is a small community garden established in the Ballard neighborhood in 1999. Greg’s is one of the few green spaces in an urban and industrial Seattle neighborhood. Over the years the garden had become neglected and abused, but in 2009 the gardeners started a concerted effort to renovate the garden and reintroduce it to the neighborhood community.

Maintaining a donation garden and giving back to the local community has always been important at Greg’s Garden. The garden has always set aside space for produce for the local food bank. Our renovation plans include revitalizing the donation garden space. Our plans include expanding the space to increase our donations, relocating the donation garden to improve its visibility, and build sturdy raised beds with signs and information to help communicate and explain our donation efforts to gardeners and visitors from the community.

Improving the donation garden at Greg’s Garden provides many benefits. After our renovations we hope to double the amount food we give to our local food bank. Visible, attractive, and informative donation garden beds help draw in and engage gardeners and visitors. Bringing in the community has proven to be one of the best ways to improve the garden and our donation efforts.
