Art in the Garden – August 3

Art in the Garden is celebrating its 18th year at the Ballard P-Patch Community Garden!  Join the fun for a few hours or for the entire day on Saturday, August 3 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., rain or shine.  This is a free family event.  The garden is a hidden gem nestled at 8527 – 25th Avenue NW.

This year the P-Patch has an opportunity at Art in the Garden to pitch in and Give the Gnome a Home. Ballard P-Patch must raise $1.8 million to purchase the half acre where the garden is located, or the land will be developed into four single-family residences. Come out and enjoy the artwork, the bountiful garden plots, and the warmth of community—with optimism that we get to do it again next year!

Art in the Garden is the primary fundraiser for the Ballard P-Patch, and supports the Giving Gardens for the Ballard Food Bank, as well as on-going efforts to improve the garden and maintain it for the entire community.  Keep up-to-date with artists and the day’s events by visiting the P-Patch online.
