Save the Ballard P-Patch!

Categories: Uncategorized|

The Ballard P-Patch is an important part of our community. The garden grows and donates food to the Ballard Food Bank, offers garden space to neighbors, and hosts educational and arts events. The garden is also a beautiful green space, untouched by development. A committed group of volunteers are working to raise the funds to save this neighborhood gem, and we hope you will join them in this mission. Sign the petition!

Food Donated to Ballard Food Bank

Categories: Uncategorized|

The gardeners took over the space in front of the Crown Hill Center this spring. As they grew their plan for the garden space as urban food forest, they also grew over 500 pounds (and counting) of food to donate to the Ballard Food Bank. What an innovative way to work for our community! We are looking for volunteers as we expand the program to the Holman Grove around 90th st and Mary Ave NW. Contact us for more information.

We Worried About Smoke….

As we planned the summer street festival series, we worried about the smoke forcing us to cancel August. Instead we had a heavy fall of rain - that didn't deter folks from the food truck and music. Several brave neighbors even waded through the evening to watch the original Jurassic Park. A fun night of food, music, and dinosaurs.

The Road Mural is Complete

Thank you so much Andy! The process was amazing - community members were out painting the street bringing Andy's vision to life. Working with SDOT, we knew what to add to the paint to make the mural last for up to 10 years! A community effort that involved neighbors, local business, neighborhood artists, and the city.

Crown Hill Road Mural

Categories: Uncategorized|

The second street festival brought bubbles, an encore from Off the Rez, a DJ, and a neighborhood art project. Working with neighborhood artist Andy Miller, Crown Hill got to channel its inner artist to spruce up this hub of activity. Andy designed the mural, and drew the outline on the street. Neighbors of all ages got to pick up a brush to bring color and life to the painting. Stop by 90th st NW between Mary and 14th Ave NW (the back of Turtle Coffee) and check out the neighborhood produced art!
