Bring fresh ideas to Pickering Garden open houses
June 8, 2009
NEW — 6 a.m. June 8, 2009
City officials and Seattle Tilth staffers will host two open houses for people interested in improving Pickering Farm Garden.
The first open house is from 5-7 p.m. June 11 at City Hall, 130 E. Sunset Way. The second open house is from 5-7 p.m. June 25 at City Hall Northwest, 1775 12th Ave. N.W.
City officials formed a partnership with the Tilth to plant the seed for the garden’s vision, design and growth.
Officials have received several ideas for the garden, including establishing city demonstration gardens, offering hands-on educational opportunities for organic gardening, creating a hub of a connected community trail system that includes other community garden sites and connecting to a Gilman Boulevard edible landscaping parkway. Leaders want to hear more suggestions at the open houses.
The garden is located on the west side of Pickering Barn.
