Allison Rinard - Village Community Pollinator Garden

Alleycat Acres – Village Community Pollinator Garden

Date grant awarded: 03/09/2018

“The Village Community Garden project” operates in partnership between Alleycat Acres, Catholic Community Services, and Monica’s Village Place. The project transforms the parking strip of both agencies, spanning one city block, into a thriving community farm engaging both building residents and the broader neighborhood. With vegetables, fruit trees, berries, native plant and pollinator habitat, we are building a restorative public landscape right in the center of Seattle, complete with educational programs for children and adults. Food is more than what we eat; it’s a catalyst for intimate, meaningful relationships.
