Growing Families
(submitted by a Maa Nyei Lai Ndeic P-Patch community gardener)

Maa Nyei Lai Ndeic P-Patch sits between spiky electrical towers on a long greenway of Seattle City Light property; a fence with red and white recycled stop sign posts surrounds the gardeners. The P-Patch gardeners, immigrants from the highland of Laos and Thailand, industriously grow the food crops of their homeland for extended families and community. Each year they greet one another, gratified to see the same happy faces, pleased to see the children bigger than last year, glad to see new babies in their colorful costumes.
