FREE field trips!

Our new grant from King Conservation District makes it possible for us to offer FREE 2nd and 3rd grade field trips to all Seattle Public Schools where 35% or more of the students receive free or reduced-fee lunch!

We've completed 2016 trips for 22 different classes, and are looking forward to all the students and teachers we'll meet in the spring! There are 4 different field trip themes that teachers can choose from, and all field trip activities are aligned with Next Generation Science Standards.

News and Notes

In 2016, Magnuson P-Patch gardeners donated over 4400 lbs. of fresh organic produce to the Lake City Food Bank and to the Magnuson Park/Solid Ground housing residents! Kudos to ALL Magnuson P-Patchers who gave their time and energy to grow so much for other community members.
