    Help us help our business community

    Our community’s beloved small businesses have been hit hard by COVID-19.

    Seed Library serves gardeners, even with PNA doors closed

    New gardeners and veterans alike have been requesting seeds from the King County Seed Lending Library branch that is hosted at the PNA. It is happening because we figured out a way, even with the PNA closed and social distancing mandated, to share our seed supply. Since announcing our program on April 19, we’ve filled over 50 seed orders. Phinney, Greenwood, and Ballard neighbors have used the service, but we’ve also served people from around the city....

  • We love our community!

    We love our community!

    We have seen our community come together in a big way before—when the Greenwood explosion happened—and we feel honored that once again you have rallied; this time for the PNA. So many folks—from life-long PNA members to names who are new to us—have believed in the future of the PNA, and we are grateful and humbled.

If you helped us get there, thank you so much. ...
