The Danny Woo International District Community Garden is a lovely urban park in the heart of downtown Seattle. The 1.5-acre garden, managed by Interim CDA, provides community gardening space, picnic benches, public art and walking trails.
In 2008 a children’s garden was added to the Danny Woo Community Garden. Experiences like outdoor gardening give children a sense of accomplishment—and hope. The young gardeners are immigrants or have immigrant parents, and all come from low-income backgrounds.
