The Fremont P-Patch a couple of weeks before the end of Summer. Clear, brilliant sunlight on a city lot. The air is alive with butterflies, bees and wasps. Serenity and abundance in the middle of a busy Seattle neighborhood. Flowers, vegetables, fruit and weeds all basking in the sun before they make their way to local tables or the green compost cone.
The Fremont P-Patch is one of 90 community gardens in Seattle. The gardens are built and maintained on public land by a large band of 6,800 volunteers. The P-Patch program is managed by the city of Seattle. It is a popular program with a long waiting list. Waiting time for individual garden plots can stretch out as long as four years.
The Fremont P-Patch is more than twenty years old and open to public viewing and strolling. The Fremont P-Patch is located at 3935 Woodland Park Ave North.
