New rooftop P-Patch community garden opens at Seattle Center – the largest in the country

The sun came out last Saturday just in time to celebrate the new UpGarden P-Patch community garden on the roof of Mercer Garage at Seattle Center. Mayor McMinn, Councilmembers Bagshaw and Godden, along with more than 100 community members and city staff, attended the event. The 30,000 square foot site will have more than 110 plots for community members to garden. This P-Patch is the country’s first large-scale rooftop community garden and the first municipal rooftop community garden fully accessible to the public.
