We have exciting news to share about our P-Patch Community Gardening Program. Since last spring, our P-Patch staff has been working on the creation of an online database and application process for gardeners. While the new process will create efficiencies for staff and for the city, this improvement to the operation of the P-Patch program will provide more ease for plot renewals and assistance to gardeners and volunteers. It will also be able to handle online registration and credit card payments.
Our plan is to launch this new system in December. For those of you who are P-Patch gardeners, you have received a letter describing the timeline for renewals. More information will come on how to use the new system. And for those of you without internet access, our staff will help you via the mail or on the phone.
Lastly, for people who are on our Interest List, your information will be transferred to the new system, and for those of you who aren’t on our Interest List and want to be, visit http://www.seattle.gov/neighborhoods/ppatch/signupPpatch.htm.
