Located adjacent to the City of Seattle’s Kobe Terrace Park, the Danny Woo Community Garden makes up part of 1.5 acres of the largest green space in Seattle’s Chinatown-ID. The steeply terraced garden is comprised of 88 plots that are tended by about 65 elderly Asian gardeners. Named after a member of the Woo family that has leased the property to InterIm CDA since 1975, the garden is uniquely tied to the history of the Chinese, Japanese, Filipino, Vietnamese, Korean and other Asian and Pacific Islander immigrants who helped make Seattle the city it is today. The garden is an important place where low-income gardeners can socialize, get exercise and raise vegetables that reflect their cultural foods of choice: bok choy, bittermelon, daikon, and watercress among others.
At this support project, TMC members will tackle ongoing gardening preps that include mulching, pruning, and good old garden-beautification. Kids are welcome as they are able to help out works with the chicken coop and other fun stuff.
All tools are provided as well as warm drinks that will keep us toasty.

Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
