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! 

The Wetmore Community Farm is coordinated by Kyla Rudnick and community liason Annalisa Moore. You can reach them here: Kyla@alleycat-acres.org and Annalisa@alleycat-acres.org
