Bradner Gardens Park in Seattle’s Mt. Baker neighborhood is a unique, collaborative space supported by partnerships among Seattle Parks, neighborhood residents, the Department of Neighborhood’s P-Patch program, and nonprofits like Tilth Alliance, Washington Native Plant Society and King County Master Gardeners.
The Tilth Alliance learning garden at Bradner Gardens showcases year-round vegetable gardening, raised beds, plants that attract beneficial insects, swale gardening, soil building techniques, and drip irrigation. Bradner Gardens also features a community P-Patch, a gathering pavilion, an abundance of art, demonstration gardens and one of the most successful community-led compost systems in the city..
Bradner Gardens Park exists today as the result of the vision of a group of determined citizens, whose activism saved the site from development and resulted in a new city policy to prevent the loss of neighborhood park space due to development pressure. Learn more about the park’s history.
This garden is on the ancestral lands of the Coast Salish people. It is stewarded by community volunteers, students and Tilth Alliance gardeners. Food grown in the learning garden is donated and shared with the community. Our focus is on encouraging vibrant garden ecosystems, relationships, and joy in growing and sharing food.

Volunteering is a great to get involved with Tilth Alliance! During weekly work parties, small groups of volunteers help to prepare and maintain annual and perennial garden beds, tend to fruit trees, harvest produce, weed and mulch this special community learning garden.
