Growing healthier communities!

About Us.jpg

Our Vision

To create vibrant inclusive Northwest communities with healthy food culture, fed by organic gardeners and farmers.

Our Mission

Building healthy and diverse communities by educating, encouraging, and enabling people to grow organic produce for themselves and others.

We provide educational opportunities for growing, sharing, and preparing food.

We advocate for community gardeners and the growth and sustainment of P-Patches, urban gardens, and open spaces.

We acquire and hold land for organic community gardens, urban farms, and green spaces.

We are the expanded identity of the P-Patch Trust, which for decades promoted and provided services to P-Patches.

We believe in the power of gardening to make positive social and environmental changes. We encourage and enable communities in creating gardens and orchards where residents grow healthy food and reap the benefits of working and eating together.

Founded in 1973 with an agreement between the city of Seattle, the co-op PCC and a retired Wedgewood farmer named Rainie Picardo, we are now one of the largest and most honored community gardening initiatives in the nation!
