We also have a plot that is affiliated with Orca School just up the street, and a garden belonging to a nearby pre-school. A wonderful old willow tree is the hub by the shed, but most of the garden is sunny. Our community grape vine is a thing to admire and indulge in from late August-September. Over the past year, we have added many new plots, creating space for more gardeners. We gather for work parties, monthly, and currently our harvest is scheduled to go to the Rainier Valley Food Bank.

The Interbay Giving Garden occupies roughly 2500 sq. ft. of designated raised beds in the P-Patch. From early April through October, our team meets every Tuesday, from 5:30 p.m. until dusk, to till, plant, weed, water, harvest and build compost. We’re a friendly, social group of people and after we work, we always gather for a simple potluck supper on the patio. We welcome volunteers of every age and background, with or without experience. Whatever you don’t know, we’ll teach you! Just show up in your gardening clothes and we’ll take it from there.

Many generous P-Patchers donate some of the food they grow to the Giving Garden program, and together we donate about 4,000 pounds of organically grown produce every year to the Ballard Food Bank, Mary’s Place and St. Martin’s on Westlake.

Picardo Farm P-Patch
25th Ave NE
Seattle, WA 98115

We have 22 – 4 foot x 8 foot x 18 inch beds built of juniper planks that were installed between spring of 2012 and fall/winter of 2012. We are growing at present: pac choi, broccoli, mustard, kale, leeks, garlic, onions, lettuce, spinach, chard, beets, carrots, peas, orach, turnips, rutabagas and radishes. We will be transitioning into some summer crops to include more lettuce and other greens, more root crops and green beans, zucchini, yellow summer squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, tomatillo and winter squash.

We are coordinated in a few different ways to grow food: we have groups who adopt a bed which this year includes Girl Scout Troop 789, Whole Foods Roosevelt Green Team, Sustainable NE Seattle, University Presbyterian Church and University Christian Church. We also have individual gardeners adopt a bed and then a team of people that take care of the beds through a Volunteer Spot calendar. We generally plant the team beds as a group through work parties. Last year we grew 584 pounds of fresh, organic produce, and we were only growing in half the beds at that point! Imagine what we will do this year!
