Work Party

Work parties are scheduled to do work at Kirke Park, like weeding in the garden.

Volunteers Needed!

Are you craving an opportunity to get your hands in the dirt? Socialize with other gardeners? Support the Ballard Food Bank? Or are you/do you have a high schooler who needs to accrue service hours to fulfill graduation requirements?

Volunteer in the Giving Garden! The Giving Garden at Kirke’s P-Patch grows herbs for the Food Bank in Ballard, and needs help on harvest days. Duties will include harvesting and packaging herbs and/or delivering harvested items to the Food Bank (which can be done by car — or by bike!). It’ll be fun and easy (if you’re a gardening newbie, the Giving Garden manager will show you what to do), and your help will be greatly appreciated! Many hands make light work, as the saying goes.

Giving Garden

Harvest days are Thursdays, 9 to 10 am throughout the summer, beginning July 20. You don’t have to make a long term commitment or RSVP — just come when you can. See you there!

Work Party: Sunday, June 11, 9am-Noon

This Friends of Kirke Park Work Party will get the park all spiffy for the Sustainable Ballard Edible Garden Tour on June 24, which begins here at Kirke. We’ll also get the playground area in good shape for the busy summer season. Some perennial weeds (morning glory, buttercup, etc.) are trying to get a foothold along the perimeter of the park, so we’ll tackle those as well. Thank you for helping keep our park beautiful!

Sunday, June 11

9am to Noon

Please bring gloves and garden tools if you can (we’ll have some to loan if you need to borrow).
