Hey Neighbor: Meet Lisa Uemoto

The Seattle Department of Neighborhoods’ Hey Neighbor! series introduces you to the people behind the scenes working to build, strengthen, and engage the communities of Seattle.

Meet Lisa Uemoto

Lisa Uemoto has been a P-Patch Community Garden Coordinator with the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods since 2015. She emigrated with her family from Taiwan to Seattle when she was 12-years-old and the sense of community she felt during that transition led her to the kind of work she does today. In addition to her work with the P-Patch, Lisa has more than twenty years of professional experience in community building and community development work. She feels so fortunate that she gets to work closely with diverse gardeners and learn practical gardening tips from both them and her colleagues.
