PHOTO FRIDAY: Welcome To The B-Patch

With this Sunday’s upcoming B-Patch Garden Day we though it would be a good time to swing by the community garden and check things out for ourselves.

We were amazed at how lush and verdant the gardens have become. Everywhere you look are beautiful flowers and vegetables growing and you’re surrounded by buzzing bees and the sounds of bird calls. The garden is even equipped with a bench and picnic table, making it an inviting place to relax and spend some time.

It’s well worth stopping by for a visit, but in the meantime here’s a photo slideshow taken by Michael just this morning. Sit back, relax, click and enjoy the view!

  1. Kudos and a Green Thumb Award (if we had one) to all the outstanding volunteers and B-Patchers involved with this project. Pretty darn good, we’d say, for a first-time effort of this kind in partnership with Burien Parks, in collaboration with Sustainable Burien. And a shout-out goes to our Parks Development and Operations Manager, Steve Roemer, for his efforts in guiding and facilitating the establishment of this new program with local citizens.

    Thanks for the gorgeous photos. Believe it or not, the plantings in this garden are only a little over 3 months old. We’re all amazed. A delightful day at the B-Patch Kitchen Garden event today, with potluck and demonstrations. Somewhere between 30 and 40 folks stopped by and those who were seeing it for the first time were truly impressed. It would be lovely to find space for another community garden in Burien — I think the interest is definitely there and we can see that it’s possible! I also add my thanks to Steve Roemer for helping this happen, and a big thank you to Kevin Alexander and other volunteers from Sustainable Burien for all their work on this project.
