How Can You Help?

The Magnuson Children’s Garden Committee extends a warm welcome to all individuals, groups, and businesses to help us sustain the garden!

There are multiple ways you can participate, and each one is a vital ingredient in our success!

1) Donate funds or supplies to the garden:

  • In-kind donations are also very much appreciated! If you have extra garden tools, gloves, plants, art supplies, or other items that you think would benefit the Children’s Garden, please contact us at with a description of your donation, and include a photo if possible.  Please do not drop anything off at the Childen’s Garden without contacting us.  We’ll reply right away to let you know if we can accept it, and if so, arrange a time for a Children’s Garden Committee member to pick it up or meet you at the garden for delivery.  Thanks so much!

2) Participate in one of our Garden Stewardship Events:

  • We provide gloves and tools for all adult and child volunteers, and typical stewardship activities include simple garden maintenance such as weeding and mulching beds and paths, planting and fertilizing plants, and watering. We provide refreshments too!
  • King Co. Master Gardeners and/or other experienced gardeners are always on hand at each event to guide stewardship volunteers, answer your home gardening questions, and make all our events fun for novice gardeners as well as experienced ones!
  • For details on our upcoming stewardship opportunities, visit our Events webpage! We can also arrange a free custom stewardship event for your scout, campfire, community, family or corporate group, with a minimum of 9 attendees (3 of which must be adults). For more information, contact us at
