The Toandos “P-patch” Community Garden has 14 sunny 10 x 20 plots. The garden is fenced to keep deer out, and each plot has water available. There are tools covering most garden chores in a community shed for use by the gardeners. The use of a plot is free, but there is an expectation that the gardeners share some of their bounty with the Thursday Community Lunch program. Participants are asked to attend a few work parties throughout the year. If you like to garden but don’t want your own plot, you are welcome to join the work parties and help out other gardeners.
The garden has received major financial support from the Jefferson County Master Gardeners Association and from the Quilcene-Brinnon Garden Club, as well as from Jefferson County Parks and Recreation District 1. Local individuals helped in many ways to make the P-patch possible, from plowing the ground to providing fencing materials and plants, and more. We are very appreciative for the time and energy of these local people: Gary Elmer and Jackie Gardner, Doug and Joanmarie Eggert, Bob Thulin, Karen Gale, Beverly Bautista, Sharron Severson, Myra Tornensis, Cary Vine, Pat and Larry Robinson, Carol and Ray Ortmann, Jillian Greenwood, Dan Oliver, and Kris and Greg Burns. Thank you!!
