The Seattle City Council and Mayor Bruce Harrell have proclaimed 2023 to be the Year of Community Gardening in honor of the P-Patch Community Gardening Program's 50th anniversary. The P-Patch Community Gardening Program, managed by the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, is the largest municipally managed community gardening program west of New York. Community gardeners grow food, flowers, and herbs on 15 acres of land across the city of Seattle and provide stewardship for an additional 35 acres. All P-Patch gardens are open to the public to enjoy and are utilized as restorative spaces, learning and idea incubators, and venues for community gatherings.
