Camp Fire is very excited to share the newest addition to our program offerings – our Coleman Park P-Patch! Centrally located in the Mt. Baker neighborhood, our P-Patch will be an opportunity for youth and groups to visit a local garden, learn about growing your own food using organic methods, and earning service hours by helping out!

The P-Patch program is facilitated by the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods and has been operating for the last 44 years. There are 90 community P-Patch gardens across the city with 3,055 plots and 6,800 gardeners. Gardens are used to grow organic food, flowers, fruit, and herbs, with many gardeners contributing part of their crop to local food banks. Learn more about the P-Patch Program!

How to Get Involved

Come volunteer with us at the P-Patch! Bring your Camp Fire group or come as a family or individual. We’ll be here all summer long into the fall working on planting, weeding, watering, and building special little surprises throughout the patch. You can also help us support the Coleman Park P-Patch community by working to clear weeds, tend to the Food Bank gardens, and more. For our Camp Fire groups, we will spend extra time talking about organic gardening, learning about where our food comes from and the work that it takes to grow healthy fruits and vegetables. Depending on the season, we may get to taste a few things too!

Volunteer & Visit
