Join MOHAI P-Patch Walking Tour this Saturday

In celebration of the P-Patch Program’s 41st anniversary, MOHAI is sponsoring an educational walk this Saturday.  The walk begins at the UpGarden at Seattle Center, and meanders down to the Belltown P-Patch and back. Along the way you will learn about the growing techniques in these two very different, very special gardens, and talk about their inception and the overall history of the program.  The walk will include a look at large and small efforts to transform our urban landscape, with a little history and some unique sites thrown in.

The tour has a small fee, which supports MOHAI’s efforts to connect Seattle people to its history. Pre-registration is required. Here’s a link:
