Haven adds kitchen garden on patio
PORT TOWNSEND — The Recovery Cafe patio, with its tables, chairs and view of Kah Tai Lagoon, looks like a good place to sit back, breathe the fresh air, and chill.
It has become that kind of place.
As of this spring, though, the patio in back of the cafe at 19th and Kearney streets is transforming into a place for work, growth and nourishment. In support of everybody who comes to the Recovery Cafe, the Nordland Garden Club and YourTinyFarm.org have established a substantial kitchen garden on the patio.
