Community Garden is a GO

Sprout!There have been plans for some time now for a community garden at the north end of the big field at the Ravenna-Eckstein Community Center. There have also been meetings. And one pancake breakfast in a downpour. But no ground breaking and no planting.

That is, until next week. IT’S FINALLY HAPPENING!

Seattle Parks and Recreation has given the project a green light for sod busting (Thursday, May 5) and raised bed building (Saturday, May 8).

The approval coming this week allows the raised bed building party to take place on Saturday, May 8, the same day as the city-wide SPRING INTO BED celebration. Find out more about SPRING INTO BED here.

For more information on how to participate in your (yes, YOUR) community garden, contact me (rebecca [at] and I’ll pass along the contact information.
