Hazel Heights P-Patch celebrates grand opening



After nearly six years of community efforts and planning, the Hazel Heights P-Patch opened today to a warm celebration.  Dozens of people, including neighbors and elected officials, turned out to celebrate the opening of the site at NW 42nd St and Baker Ave NW.


A highlight of the P-Patch is an 8,000 gallon irrigation water cistern that will capture rainwater from the roofs of the two nearest homes.

The rainwater system and improved alley is a demonstration project to help reduce storm water runoff pollution into Puget Sound.


One of the nineteen plots, as well as several on-site fruit trees and vines, will be maintained by volunteers to provide fresh produce for local food banks.  A beehive will be kept by a neighborhood beekeeper on the slope’s south side.


“Woo hoo!” exclaimed event chair Beckey Sukovaty of the day’s celebration.  “It really takes a village, as you can see.  Everybody pitching in and adding what they can volunteer-wise and money-wise.”
