Seattle Community Farm Under Construction and the First Work Party!

Construction is well under way at the new Seattle Community Farm. Crews have been on site for the last few weeks grading, laying gravel paths and terracing.  

The main farming area viewed from the north:

All of the construction is very exciting, but even more exciting is our first work party! The work party will be on Saturday the 20th of November from 9 AM – 2 PM rain or shine. We need to build some small retaining walls and wood chip the main garden paths and would love your help. Please contact Scott Behmer, Seattle Community Farm Coordinator, for more information and to RSVP for the work party: or 206.694.6828

The Seattle Community Farm is located on Seattle Housing Authority land in the Rainier Vista neighborhood. The farm is on the west side of MLK Way S at S Andover Ct, behind the Habitat for Humanity build site—stop by and check out the progress!

Special thanks to the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods P-Patch Community Gardening Program who has been one of our hardworking partners coordinating and funding this construction as well as the Seattle Housing Authority for providing the land and irrigation.

Also, thanks to the USDA Community Food Project grant for funding this project.
