Over forty years ago, the concept of an individual allotment of land within an urban community garden or “P-Patch” was born when a city councilmember and a group of neighborhood activists wanted to find a way to maintain some farmland within Seattle.
The “P” commemorates the Picardo family whose farm became the first P-Patch.
Now, there are over 82 of these community gardens spread
throughout the city. Within each P-Patch, individual garden plot sizes range between 40 and 400 square feet.
