Thanks to everyone who was a part of this amazing year at Swansons! We launched a blog, started the Grow With Us Project, interviewed Seattle gardening celebrities, created kitty-friendly planters for a houseboat, pruned, weeded, planted and enjoyed the fruits of our labor. Here's a quick look at 2014 in photos from Digging Deeper. And this is just a taste of our year! See A Year in Photos, our Facebook album, for more fun.
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.
