Community Planning Process for Seattle Tilth’s Wallingford Teaching Gardens

Be a part of planning educational enhancements to the Seattle Tilth teaching gardens in Wallingford!

In 2008, Seattle Tilth received a $15,000 grant from the City of Seattle’s Neighborhood Matching Fund to launch a community planning process to guide program development and improvements for the Wallingford teaching gardens, including the Urban Agriculture Center, in use since 1978, and the Children’s Garden, in use since 1988. During our 30th anniversary, Seattle Tilth began making plans for the next 30 years and involved the whole community in the process. 

The planning process involved neighbors, P-Patch gardeners, park users, tenants of the Good Shepherd Center, past and present members and volunteers, the board and staff. Staff researched the original and successive plans throughout the years in order to gather all of the best ideas into a master plan for the gardens to be implemented over time.

Improvements under consideration will include covered gathering areas, improved storage, signs, paths, raised beds and other elements to improve the educational function of these popular teaching spaces.
