P Patch Gardening

A p patch is a parcel of property that people can acquire and use to garden and grow food/plants. Groups of p patches are gathered together in community gardens. The P patch term is actually unique to the Seattle area. It is named after the Picardo family who pioneered this kind of collaborative gardening style. P patches a great way to garden away from home and help out the community.

Bayside P Patch is a lovely example of a community garden in Everett. Bayside offers great views of Possession Sound and an interesting juxtaposition of beautiful plants on the terraced hill overlooking old Everett Factories.
