Magnuson’s Food Bank Program #1 in Seattle for Donations in 2015!
The Magnuson Community Garden is one of the largest in the Seattle P-Patch system with 11 food bank plots (also known as Giving Gardens) that are planted and harvested by Magnuson P-Patch volunteer gardeners specifically for donation. Gardeners also donate from their own P-Patch gardens. Organic produce donations are made to the Lake City Food Bank and to the Transitional Housing Programs located in nearby Magnuson Park Housing.
In 2015, Magnuson Park Community Garden donated 4,739 pounds, placing Magnuson at #1 in terms of donations. For details on all 2015 donations in the Seattle area, the Giving Gardens 2015 Report is available for download.
