WETMORE COMMUNITY FARM
This is our first foray into working directly with the City of Seattle. Wetmore Ave S dead ends into a previously undeveloped Right of Way owned by Seattle Department of Transportation. The Moore family are long time residents who asked Alleycat Acres to help create a farm in this space. We recruited community members from Senior Housing Assistance Group, Rainier Valley Food Bank, Homesight WA, and the Estelle Street P-patch to help design the space. We've started by working to clear the site of invasive species, primarily a huge overgrowth of Japanese Knotweed. Stay tuned for more news as this site develops!
We host work parties on the last Saturday of each month from 10:00-2:00, which kick off with a community meeting to discuss plans and hear feedback. Hope to see you there!
This project is funded in part by a Neighborhood Matching Fund award from Seattle Department of Neighborhoods.
