Yours for the Taking!
Six gardens, five hours, one camera and lots to steal—ideas of course!
Whether your goal is to simplify your garden, “glam” up your patio, or create that perfect path to nowhere; attend the Mill Creek Garden Tour & Artisan Market and you’ll walk off with ideas to get you started on the journey to a fabulously livable garden. Good golly, get it done, and we might smooth-talk you into showing your garden on next year’s Tour!
This leisurely trek, photo op and chance to quiz Mill Creek Garden Club volunteers and gardeners-in-residence occurs Saturday, June 22, 2019.
Rounding out your reconnaissance caper will be ten talented artisans for alfresco shopping in each of the six featured gardens. Who knows, you may dig up the perfect artifact for your landscape project.
The gardens are open from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm and the tickets are reasonably priced at $15 each, or $20 on Tour Day.
For your convenience, you may purchase tickets—CASH or CHECKS only—at the following locations:
- Artisan Custom Framing, Mill Creek Town Center
- University Book Store, Mill Creek Town Center
- McAuliffe’s Valley Nursery, Snohomish
- Molbak’s, Woodinville
- Sky Nursery, Shoreline
Tickets will not be sold in the gardens!
This is more than a run-of-the-mill garden tour, it’s also a feel-good event: a percentage of the artisan sales and all ticket proceeds go to Mill Creek Garden Club’s “Giving through Gardening” Grant Program, which in the 2018-19 year awarded $7,000 to community organizations.
With tour brochure in hand, put on your sleuthing shoes, lather on sunscreen or tote that umbrella and we’ll be on the lookout for you. There’s bound to be at least one great idea with your name on it—and we won’t care if you copy it.
