Ballard P-Patch at risk of losing its land, fundraising to save community garden

SEATTLE — Ballard P-Patch, a community garden, is at risk of losing its land as economic development changes the neighborhood.

The farmers are fundraising to protect the nonprofit from closing.

"Today the garden is at risk. Economic pressure to develop real estate in this neighborhood means that this fertile ground will literally be sold from under the feet of the Ballard P-Patch," a fundraising website reads.

Ballard P-Patch is responsible for producing 1,300 plus pounds of produce for the Ballard Food Bank, provides on-site disaster recovery supplies, garden tours for local schools and community patio and grill space open to everyone.
