Greenwood Park Community Garden needs last-minute donations to complete raised beds

October 28th, 2011 · Comments

Members of the volunteer group Vision Greenwood Park have put in more than 1,000 hours of labor to create a Community Garden at Greenwood Park. They’re almost done, but they still need a little more money to finish building the raised garden beds and fill them with garden soil.

The site looked like this one year ago:

And now looks like this:

The support of neighbors has truly made this a community garden. We have stretched our grant funds with discounts from Dunn Lumber, Pacific Topsoil, and the Dirt Exchange, but we still need $2,200 more to build out the raised garden beds with additional soil and taller borders.

Please help us complete the community garden in time for late season planting this year.

Donations of any amount can be made securely on the Phinney Neighborhood Association website. Checks are also welcome and can be made out to Vision Greenwood Park and sent to PO Box 30105, Seattle, WA 98113. All donations are tax deductible.*

We thank you in advance for your support!
