The Meadowbrook Community Garden and Orchard is a project that began in the summer of 2010 by neighbors in the Meadowbrook neighborhood in Seattle, WA. It grows organic vegetables is and working to maintain an orchard space around the Meadowbrook Community Center.
The volunteers are working on growing food locally to gain skills, support the environment, and build community through growing, harvesting, and distributing food to both participating volunteers and the needy in the community.
The community garden is a communal effort, because Meadowbrook doesn’t have individual plots like a traditional Seattle P-patch. Food grown in the community garden is shared with the garden volunteers and donated to food banks and community kitchens. A goal of the community garden is to learn techniques to optimize the appropriate harvesting and distribution of the food it grows.
The garden’s primary location is just to the south of Nathan Hale High School at 10750 30th Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98125. Parking is available on the street or in the student parking lot.
