P-patches designated as gathering places in emergencies

The city’s emergency management department has announced that P-patch gardens will now be designated as meeting places during an emergency.

The Seattle Office of Emergency Management (OEM) has partnered with the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods P-Patch Community Gardening Program to establish the gardens as Community Emergency Hubs, which are places where people gather after a disaster to help one another. Other types of hubs are homes, apartments and condos; with the addition of P-patches, there are now 150 established hubs in Seattle.

There are four P-patches in Ballard (for a map of all the city’s P-patches, click here):
