Kent's Community Garden P-Patch Pre-registration Begins Soon

February 4, 2013 – Kent’s downtown Community Garden P-patch season runs April 1 through October 27 in its regular location on the corner of James St. and 64th Avenue S. Gardeners may rent a 20’ by 20’ plot for the season for $45 plus a refundable $25 deposit.  There are 44 plots available, assigned on a first-come, first-served basis once the rental fee has been paid.


Returning gardeners are allowed a maximum of two plots per household.  Their pre-registration period begins Wednesday,  February 27, and ends Friday, March 8. New gardener registration begins Monday, March 11.  Register by calling the Kent Commons at 253-856-5000, or stop by in person at 525 4th Avenue S.


The downtown community garden P-patch has been offering organic community gardening since 1997.  The program is a collaborative effort between the city of Kent and The Bishop’s Storehouse, an extension of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which owns the property.  For more information, call 253-856-5110.
