The Howell Collective P-Patch lies in a strip between The Sanctuary & Seven Hills Park in Seattle.  The Sanctuary is a condominium development built within a beautiful & impressive old Christian Science church.  Entrances to a few of the units are visible next to the p-patch.  The old church, & to a lesser extent the p-patch, are the only compelling reasons to visit Seven Hills Park, among the blandest of parks in Seattle.  However, the park is certainly an improvement over the parking lot that preceded it.  Tables & barbecue grills are a nice touch.  The rocks that represent the 7 hills of Seattle are almost comically less than imposing.  The rest is mostly grass.  The Howell Collective P-Patch was established in 2011.  It is owned by the Seattle Department of Parks & Recreation.  There are no individual plots here.  The p-patch has been designed, planted, maintained & harvested together by the members of this community garden.  Click here to read the Howell Collective P-Patch Blog.  The garden & park are near the 15th Avenue E business district.  Click here to see more Seattle P-Patches.
