Barton Street P-Patch will unveil its arbor and celebrate its first season Oct. 21

The Barton Street P-Patch at 34th s.w. and s.w. Barton Street, which opened on March 11 of this year, has seen an prodigious volume of work done to not only build the structures within it but to plant and maintain the garden areas. It's been a remarkble few months with all volunteer labor coming to work parties most weekends creating garden walls, paths, laying bricks, and of course planting what became a bountiful crop ranging from flowers to many vegetables.

On October 20, the volunteers will celebrate their first successful season (even though they are calling this the 2nd Annual) by holding a Harvest Festival from 1 to 3pm, that will feature the unveiling of a special arbor built on the site. It's a potluck event so bring a dish to share if you'd like to take part but some beverages will be provided.

The organizers emphasized that those attending should bring their own plates, utensils and cup and that this is a trash free site so if "you pack it in, pack it out."
