P-Patch Community Gardens

There is no place quite as beautiful as a garden in Seattle in high summer. I was enjoying feasting my eyes on the abundance of flowers, veggies, and fruit in one of the 44 P-Patch community gardens that can be found throughout Seattle. They are amazing places where neighbors use city land in common to raise food and make lovely places of flowery sanctuary for those with no room to garden at home. Food raised in these gardens is donated to Seattle's food banks, supplying much needed fresh, organic veggies. This lovely tile mural, complete with cups and saucers, adorns a wall by the garden shed at the East Lake P-Patch.
