The West Seattle Garden Tour celebrates “The Art of Gardening” for its 18th year on Sunday, July 15, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. This year’s self-guided tour showcases nine fabulous residential gardens, including a former winning garden in the Pacific Northwest Gardens competition, and includes a noontime lecture by Lorene Edwards Forkner. Ticket books are $15 per person (children 12 and under are free) and are available in June at Seattle area outlets. Ticket vouchers are also available online from www.brownpapertickets.com.
As a 501 (c) (3) non-profit, net proceeds from the tour benefit local educational and horticultural projects and community gardens. Our 2012 beneficiaries are: The Bloedel Reserve, Neighborhood House YELS, Highline Botanical Garden, Kubota Garden, Barton Street Community Garden, Community Orchard of West Seattle, Seattle Chinese Garden and ArtsWest Theatre.
