Thanks to all who donated to the garden on GiveBIG Day, May 8th! Our total donations were $282.00, which will get us started on three important 2019 garden goals: refurbishing our existing Interpretive sign and our Salmon Survival Path sign, and adding a new wayfinding sign inside the Magnuson playground that points the way to the garden!

Thanks to you, our new Columnar Oak Tree and Sunflowers will be planted soon!

Thanks to everyone who donated on GivingTuesday last Nov. 28th!  Total donations were $577.00, and because we met the Seattle Parks Foundation challenge of 15 or more donors, we received a $1000.00 bonus from them! Some of these funds have now been used to purchase and plant a beautiful Columnar Oak Tree at the top of the Lookout Hill, and the rest will be used to plant Sunflowers throughout the garden every spring from now on in honor of former CG Committee member Barbara Hainley.  We are forever grateful for your generosity!

And thanks to a grant from the Master Gardener Foundation of King County, our new multi-language entry signs and “discover your garden” activity kiosk will be installed soon too!
