August 12th, 11 AM – 3 PM-
Put this date on your calendar! The 10th Annual Open Garden event will be held at the Haller Lake P-Patch community garden on Sunday, August 12th. The event will begin at 11 AM to coincide with the ending of the service at Haller Lake United Methodist Church, on whose property the P-Patch is located. Haller Lake P-Patch was constructed in 1998 with the assistance of a Small-and-Simple grant from the City of Seattle. About 25 families from Haller Lake and nearby neighborhoods have plots at the garden, paying an annual fee for water and organic fertilizer. The P-Patch Program (http://www.seattle.gov/neighborhoods/ppatch/ ) and P-Patch Trust (http://www.ppatchtrust.org/ ) promote the establishment of these wonderful open spaces in Seattle. They are open to the public at any time (picnicking welcome but no picking please). Starting in 2003, when the P-Patch Program celebrated its 30th Anniversary, Haller Lake P-Patch had an Open Garden. It was so successful, that we have decided to have an annual celebration. Join us for sweet and savory refreshments, tours of the P-Patch, and an opportunity to meet neighbors and get some organic gardening tips.
