Crown Hill Community Garden
In 2019, Small Faces reached out to neighbors to create Crown Hill Community Garden (CHCG).
Garden volunteers, Small Faces, and Crown Hill Village decided to try out a food bank/food forest model. Educational signs encourage passersby to pick what they can reach from the sidewalk where fruit and flowers grow, and the rest goes to Ballard Food Bank and garden volunteers.
We need volunteers. We need your labor and ideas to shape and expand CHCG. Contact information below.
Small Faces students thresh and winnow seeds from chaff. Through play, they shred leaf piles, plant, harvest, and snack from the garden.
Local children build bird houses, plant shrubs/trees and seeds, weed, mulch, harvest and snack!
In 2020 we delivered a ton of food to Ballard Food Bank, by bicycle.
We need more volunteers to reach our goal of growing 4000lbs for the food bank in 2021!
Strawberry Rules: 1. Do not pick a strawberry unless it is completely red. 2. If it is red, pick and eat it now!

Open hours: generally Saturdays from noon-4pm, or any time you see a gardener at work, you can join us! If you are a regular volunteer, you can access the garden independently.
