Connecting Seattle’s Urban Gardens Through One Volunteer Management Portal
The City of Seattle’s P-Patch program is an urban gardening program with 90 sites throughout the city. Each site has 15 - 29 plots of land onsite. Communication between urban gardening sites is fragmented, sparse, and not shared in one concentrated location. In addition, there is no means to share inter-site information with outside urban farming communities.
I addressed these problems by creating a portal through which information can be disseminated through all immediate and city wide P-Patches sites. Site events and tasks can be organized through one single digital platform.
