Horiuchi Park at Boren and Fir is getting a P-Patch community garden next year, and you can help plan and design it.
Seattle Parks is hosting a meeting 6–8 p.m. Thursday at Yesler Community Center to gather design input from residents.
By next year, Horiuchi Park will have a new feature – a P-Patch community garden. To help design the P-Patch, the Yesler Terrace and First Hill communities are invited to a meeting on October 11 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at the Yesler Community Center (917 East Yesler Way). There will be food and children’s activities available.
Funded by Seattle Housing Authority with assistance from the HUD Choice Neighborhoods Initiative, the new community garden will provide a place for community members to grow fresh organic food and connect with neighbors. The legacy of the parks namesake, the late artist Paul Horiuchi, will be honored throughout the design process and construction of the community garden through artistic elements and historical context of his work.
When complete, the Horiuchi P-Patch community garden will be managed by the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods P-Patch Community Gardening Program.
