Dig Your Neighborhood at 24th+Main Farm!

Alleycat Acres reconnects people, place, and produce with a network of neighborhood run urban farms. In partnership with Monicas Village Place, Catholic Community Services, and thousands of community volunteers, we transformed this parking strip behind their offices and apartment complex into a vibrant community farm! We welcome volunteers to come visit the garden every Thursday evening, and to take home produce in exchange for their help. We are so excited to be growing food with the neighborhood, and distributing produce to neighborhood residents, Mary's Place, and Cherry Street YWCA.

We need your help to keep things growing! Our farm coordinator, Maddie, is on site during open hours to guide work and share skills. Depending on the season, you can expect to learn how to:

  • plant and care for edible vegetables, perennials, flowers, and natives
  • build healthy soil
  • identify and remove weeds
  • create compost
  • and Harvest!

We will provide all the tools and gloves, but ask that you dress for the weather and wear sturdy shoes, and encourage you to bring a water bottle.

A NOTE ON LOCATION: The address is not a real street address, but will get you close, as we are located in the planting strip behind Catholic Community Services and Monica's Village Place. We are located accross the street from the Bethel Christian Church on 24th Ave, between Main Street and Yesler. You can also search for 100 23rd Ave and find us BEHIND the offices on 24th Ave.
