Do you have a Yard or Garden you’d like to share?
Do you like to talk about plants or show off your latest sustainable garden creations?
The Rainier Valley Garden Tour wants you!
Your garden/yard doesn't need to look like Butchart Gardens…this is what we call the "real" peoples garden tour. If you have some interesting plants, a neat way to compost or re-use rain water, or even if you have urban chickens, you can be a part of the tour.
The 2010 Rainier Valley Garden Tour (formerly the Columbia City Garden Tour) will be held July 17 this year. As with last year, we are again shifting slightly the areas encompassed by the tour to continue to focus on diverse gardens throughout the Rainier Valley. The collective will again focus on sustainable gardening practices to include: Green Gardening, Water Catchment & Conservation, City Chickens, Organic Veggies & Flowers, Community Gardening, and Art in the Garden.
The 2010 Rainier Valley Garden Tour is looking for great gardens in three areas:
North to S. Genesee St, West to Rainier Ave S
South to S. Alaska St, West to MLK Jr. Way S
North to South Alaska St, West to MLK Jr Way S
South to S. Brandon, East to Rainier Ave S
North to S. Graham, West to MLK Jr. Way S
South to S. Kenyon St, East to Rainier Ave S
If you’d like to get involved in your community and share your garden, please e-mail gro.ruotnedragyellavreiniar|snoissimbus#gro.ruotnedragyellavreiniar|snoissimbus
We are also looking for volunteers. If you interested in helping the day of the tour (Saturday, July 17th) please e-mail gro.ruotnedragyellavreiniar|reetnulov#gro.ruotnedragyellavreiniar|reetnulov.
