Free Events!

We are delighted to announce that we were able to resume hosting small group stewardship events in 2021, and over the year we hosted hundreds of individuals and families who helped sustain the garden, prepare for our new wheelchair-accessible pathways, and create two beautiful murals that will be installed soon! Thanks to each and every community volunteer who made this year so great!

At all our events, we follow Covid-safe guidance from the CDC, WA State and the WSU/Master Gardener Program, and supply all sanitizing supplies and tools for each event.

We also require advance registration so that we can keep the total volunteer count at a limit that still allows good social distancing to take place.

As soon as the dates are set for our 2022 events, we will post a list of their dates and times here, as well as on our homepage. We welcome families, individuals, small community and corporate groups to contact us at magnusonchildrensgarden@gmail.com to inquire about participating in them. Thanks!


Q: What is it like to volunteer at our stewardship events?

A: Our events are fun for novice gardeners as well as experienced ones!

  • Typical activities include simple tasks such as weeding and mulching beds and paths, planting and fertilizing plants, and watering;
  • We provide bottled water and single-serving granola bars for all volunteers;
  • King Co. Master Gardeners and/or other experienced gardeners are always on hand at each event to guide volunteers, and answer your home gardening questions too!

We may also be able to schedule a free custom stewardship event for your scout, campfire, community, family or corporate group in 2022, with minimum of 2 weeks advance notice. For more information, contact us at magnusonchildrensgarden@gmail.com


We hope that soon we will also be able to resume hosting other free, fun, and educational events too!
