13th Annual Art in the Garden Fundraiser August 10

AITG-Amy-Painting-Dahlias-150x150Art in the Garden is celebrating its 13th year at the Ballard P-Patch Community Garden!  It is poised to be their biggest and best yet.  Join for a few hours, or for the entire day on Saturday, August 10 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., rain or shine, for this free event.  The garden is a hidden gem nestled at 8527 25th Ave NW.

Walk around gorgeous dahlias, ripening tomatoes and giant sunflowers as you discover 18 local artists, enjoy live acoustic music, grab a bite to eat from the food trucks, and relax with a cold Maritime Pacific at our Beer Garden on the patio.

Their talented gardeners will have homemade baked goods for sale and freshly handmade pies to auction off – prices go up fast and pies go even faster.  Try your best bidding tactics at the silent auction to win artwork, gift baskets of wine, and much more. Kids will have fun sign painting, and visiting the chicken meet and greet to learn about urban farming.  There will be garden ambassadors to answer any questions you may have, from the history of the garden to helping you identify what is growing in over 80 individual garden plots. 

Art in the Garden is the primary fundraiser for the Ballard P-Patch, and supports our Giving Gardens for the Ballard Food Bank, as well as our on-going efforts to improve our garden and maintain it for the entire community.  Keep up-to-date with artists and the day’s events by visiting http://ballardppatch.org/.  For questions email info@ballardppatch.org
