Volunteers Build Barton Street and Bitter Lake P-Patches from Scratch

Barton Street P-Patch, located on the corner of 34th Ave SW & SW Barton, and the Bitter Lake P-Patch, located N 143rd & Linden Ave N, had their inaugural work parties last weekend. Barton’s fence was nearly built, the stake was secured, the major paths were cut and the sod was moved, and the berms have a layer of sod. Bitter Lake is working on transplanting Alaska Cedars within their garden so their contractor can come in and begin the major garden excavations. For both gardens a lot more work still needs to get done and they rely heavily on volunteers throughout their community.

Both gardens’ community members are excited to get their gardening space built. Barton is holding another work party on Saturday May 28 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  Bitter Lake is continuing their work parties starting on Sunday, June 5 from 10 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and Sunday, June 12 from 10 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Anyone who is interested in gardening or who wants to get involved with their neighborhood events is invited!
