The Licton Springs P-Patch started as a student-driven initiative at North Seattle College in 1976. The land intended for the first community garden ended up as a school parking lot. Several years ago, the North Seattle College Sustainability Committee revived the dream and began an approval process to finally bring a community garden to the local neighborhood.

North Seattle College is proud of the restored wetlands on its campus. These wetlands are important ecological lands for the Thornton Creek watershed as they sit at the headwaters of the South Fork of Thornton Creek. Environmentally, the wetland habitat is significant for the functions it provides: absorbing surge flows of water, filtering pollutants from that water, and providing critical habitat for organisms that need this environment. A main trail follows a loop around the northern part of campus. There are spurs that branch off of this main loop trail.
