What is a P-Patch?
A p-patch (or pea patch) rents garden plots to members of the general public. You pay a fee for the year and then plant your veggies, flowers, herbs, whatever you like to grow. If you live in an apartment or other space with limited or no garden space, a community garden plot provides a generous space to have your very own garden.
Blueberry Park P-Patch Garden Plots, Bremerton
The City of Bremerton provides 32 publicly available spaces at Blueberry Park. This Pea Patch is administered by the Master Gardener program and a crew of dedicated and hard-working master gardeners. There are still a few plots available here for 2011. Water is provided by the city. This is an excellent flat and sunny space. Gardeners grow peas on trellises, potatoes in tires, and many kinds of vegetables. The Master Gardener demonstration garden includes accessible gardening beds, winter garden examples, and herbs. There are classes and activities throughout the summer.
