The Eastlake P-Patch is growing!

Your friendly community garden, the Eastlake P-Patch, is beginning an expansion project!

The Eastlake P-Patch is a community garden located at 2900 Fairview Ave E. The garden currently has 27 plots, and the expansion project will add 20 more. The P-Patch provides a space for organic, pesticide-free gardening of vegetables, fruits, and flowers.

We’ve just scheduled the first work party for June 27, 2009 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM. We’re going to be clearing vegetation from the area in which the new plots will go. If you’d like to come, contact Rebecca Partington (contact information below) and don’t forget to bring your gloves!

If you want to help but can’t make it to the work party on June 27, don’t worry – there will be more work parties, and the dates will be announced as soon as possible.

We are also in need of materials, so if you or someone you know would like to donate rebar, plumbing supplies, concrete, cash, food for volunteers, or plants (especially blueberry bushes), we’d love to hear from you.
