Kirke Park P-Patch opens

Congratulations to P-Patch gardeners who celebrated the grand opening of Kirke Park P-Patch this fall. The opening not only featured a fine spread of food by the  organizers, but P-Patch plots were assigned, and the winter cover crop was sown to celebrate. The P-Patch is located in Ballard at 7028 9th Avenue NW.

As a Parks and Green Spaces levy project, Kirke Park P-Patch has been in the works for more than two years. Community members volunteered more than 450 hours preparing the beds and working together to design and  build a garden shed and picnic table.  The garden shed itself honors the name of the park – “Kirke”- which is Norwegian for “church.” There are presently 37 -100 square foot plots, and over time the P-Patch will have a food bank giving garden and children’s garden spaces.
