To get reminders about upcoming events:

Foundation Events

Membership Meetings – We have several membership meetings throughout the year. Members generally get in for free (some special events may be different and will be noted in the meeting announcements). Non-members are welcome. A $5 admission fee will be charged with the option of joining the Foundation for an additional $5.

Plant Sale – Each spring and summer, our Plant Sale Nursery offers several opportunities to shop their abundance of sun-loving perennials, native and shade plants.

Fall Fundraiser – Join us in September for a lively and informative presentation from Marianne Binetti — always a treat and such a supporter of gardeners everywhere — as well as the chance to win great prizes!

Purchase Handicraft Items and Garden Tools We offer online sales of garden tools and supplies; handmade gifts; and garden decor. Delivery of all items is by arranged pickup at designated locations in Olympia, Lacey, and Tumwater WA, within a week after purchase is complete.
