Horiuchi Park P-Patch Nearing Completion – Plots Remain!

Horiuchi Park, at Boren Ave between E. Fir and E. Spruce St has converted into a P-Patch community garden. A grant to the Seattle Housing Authority and help from the 2008 Parks and Green Spaces Levy funded construction of 28 one hundred square foot community garden plots. A bit more work remains, and plots will be assigned to those who help complete the work.
