A Wallingford and Ballard urban farming group is seeking unused space to plant fruits and veggies. City Grown Seattle would like to expand in 2012, and is hoping to find residents who would like to support urban farming by letting them farm their land in exchange for a share in the farm produce.
The group exists to turn “underutilized land into productive food-growing space to feed our neighbors.” Most of the farms are in backyards, and the organizers hope to double the size of their farms in the next year.
From City Grown:
We are looking for new plots and partners within reasonable biking distance of our current hubs:
- Ballard: 60th and 17th NW
- Wallingford: 41st and Eastern
- Tangletown: 54th and Kensington Pl
If you have land you would like to see utilized for our purposes, we want to talk with you about a partnership. Don’t have much space? Talk to your neighbors – maybe we can create a farm plot out of several yards on your block.
