Parks Department to tour Eastlake P-Patch; Seattle Works helps out on Saturday

Officials from the Seattle Parks Department will be touring the Eastlake P-Patch on Friday about 1:30 p.m.

Lois Loontjens says by e-mail that one of the reasons the Eastlake P-Patch was selected for the tour was because it’s undergoing “a major expansion on a challenging site being accomplished with little money and a great deal of donated expertise and labor.”

She invites people to come join the tour in the garden during the Parks Department visit.

The usual Saturday work party at the P-Patch will get a boost this weekend. Seattle Works, a volunteer organization, will be helping out with the P-Patch expansion on Saturday from noon to 3:30 p.m. There will be lots of things to work on and special snacks, too.
