Swansons was thrilled to participate and to donate over 200 plants the restoration project! We were able to do so in part because of our Gift that Grows program.
The main site of the UW Farm is tucked away behind the Center for Urban Horticulture, an agrarian oasis in the midst of Husky stadium, U Village and the bustling UW campus. If you walk through, you will find rows and rows of carefully planted vegetables, a growing permaculture section and a student-designed shed and composting area.
For the past six weeks, a team here at Swansons Nursery has been working with Curator PR on a community landscaping project for the Ballard Boys & Girls Club. We've been busy re-imagining the existing entry as a welcoming and interactive garden and parklet for club members and their families and this past week we weeded, dug, planted and watered until we dropped.
