Location: Danny Woo Community Garden, 620 S. Main Street, Seattle, WA 98104
Spend the afternoon reconnecting with the land, while helping to preserve a historic urban growing space, with a Legacy Project at the Danny Woo Community Garden. This 1.5 acre edible community garden that is managed by InterIm CDA is located in the heart of Seattle’s Chinatown/International District (CID) and has been a source of food security and cultural preservation for low income, elderly Asian-immigrants living in the area for over 40 years. More recently, the Danny Woo Community Garden became home to a chicken coop and a children’s growing space to engage the wider community and build an intergenerational connection between youth and seniors in the neighborhood.
This Legacy Project is an opportunity to get your hands dirty and participate in the rich history of the garden by providing maintenance and restoration support. After learning about the garden’s legacy of social justice, environmental stewardship, and cultural resiliency, we’ll jump into the garden to help weed, mulch, and provide small repairs to fences and pathways. We’ll end our project just in time for you to refuel at any of the numerous eateries that fill the blocks of the CID.
HOW TO PREPARE
Please wear clothes appropriate for doing physical labor in a garden. There are gender neutral restrooms and storage lockers located in the InterIm CDA office, one block from the garden. Please bring your own water and snacks to sustain yourself. This project will occur rain or shine.
