Come and learn about the City of Seattle's P-patch program, a world leading example of a local government led community gardening program. Starting in 1973 and celebrating 50 years of service to the community, the program currently employs five staff who support 80 projects across the city. The program is fully funded by the City and is housed within the Department of Neighbourhoods. This is an opportunity for community development professionals, policy specialists and community food coordinators to connect and learn from peers who run exemplary municipal programs and projects both within Australia and overseas.

This professional development online seminar will include presentations from Nate Moxley, (P-Patch Community Gardens Coordinator City of Seattle), Glenn Herlihy (Cofounder of Beacon Food Forest, Seattle) and Naomi Lacey, (President of Community Gardens Australia), followed by a panel discussion and an opportunity to ask questions. The event will be facilitated by Gavin Hardy (Queensland coordinator of Community Gardens Australia) who travelled to Seattle in 2022 and visited some of the P-patch community gardens.
