This is a community outreach project that has been started between a group of UpGardeners, residents at the Emeritus Queen Anne senior community (805 4th Ave N), and other neighbors.
Besides a great new way to meet more neighbors, one of our top priorities is to increase the UpGarden Giving Gardens. We will be working with Emeritus residents this spring to grow seed starts for our gardens in Emeritus' greenhouse.
We're having a Kick Off Event at Emeritus on Sunday, March 23rd from 1 to 3pm.
We're going to have a speaker share about rooftop gardening, giving gardens, and how to get involved. Then we'll work to plant the first starts of the year and get them growing in their green house. Emeritus will be providing food/refreshments, meeting space in their Activities Room, and tours of their rooftop gardens and greenhouse.
