Magnuson’s 140-plot p-patch garden is managed through the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods P-Patch program. Individuals are assigned a plot for a fee and volunteer time toward care of the site. In addition to individual p-patch garden plots, there are garden plots dedicated to food bank donations, community groups, the Children’s Garden and Magnuson Community Center Nature Programs.

Work parties are scheduled the second Saturday and fourth Thursday of even month, May through October.

If interested in a garden plot at Magnuson, contact the Department of Neighborhoods P-Patch Office.
