SLIDESHOW: Demolition underway for Puget Ridge Edible Park

The house that has been on the site of the future Puget Ridge Edible Park came down under the claw of construction equipment on April 21.

This project, selected for the first round of Parks and Green Spaces Levy Opportunity Funding, will now move into its next phase. The concept is to create an urban community farm which is a neighborhood meeting place, a community food garden and a test site for environmentally conscientious sustainability.

The land at 5265 18th Ave S.W. was acquired for $520,000.
