Mayor McGilton, Councilpersons-I really believe that a P-Patch will grow over big time here in the City to south, and I thought maybe by letting the "Garden Club" (my personal "term of endearment" for Burien's city council) know my feelings it might help. Of course I have to remember that this is the same group of people who closed down Low income housing while saying how much the city supports it. But what can you do? I bitch and moan but the reality is I cannot run for council as my work hours prohibit my ability to attend council meetings and such. But I found out that emails to the council must be read at the council meetings, so I thought give it a try!
I just want to write to let you know that I fully support the small local effort to have P-Patches and community gardens in Burien. P-patches are important to a cities health and citizen morale. And it helps in these hard economic times. I know my mother, a longtime Burien resident, who recently had to sell her home and move to an apartment in Burien, would be very interested in a P-Patch. As a Resident myself, I urge you to support P-Patches and Community Gardens.
