Free Events!

We are delighted to announce that we’ve resumed hosting small group stewardship events, and we would love to have you join in the fun!

In compliance with WA State and WSU guidance, we limit each event to 15 attendees to make it easy to do social distancing while working in the garden, and we require all attendees to wear a mask or other face covering.

In addition, we supply all sanitizing supplies and tools for each event, but ask that volunteers bring their own gardening gloves. Click on the links below to find out more about each event!

Advance registration is required, so that we can ensure a small volunteer group. We welcome families, individuals, small community and corporate groups to contact us at to sign up for any of the following dates. Thanks!

  • SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 11TH FROM 10AM – 2PM: Celebrate the Harvest! Community stewardship event in the Children’s Garden. THIS EVENT IS NOW FULL, BUT PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE ON THE WAIT-LIST.  THANKS!
  • SATURDAY OCTOBER 9TH FROM 10AM – 2PM: “Put the Garden to Bed Day”. This is our traditional last community stewardship event of the year. THIS EVENT IS NOW FULL, BUT PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE ON THE WAIT-LIST.  THANKS!

Our events are fun for novice gardeners as well as experienced ones! and typical activities include simple tasks such as weeding and mulching beds and paths, planting and fertilizing plants, and watering. We also 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, with minimum of 2 weeks advance notice. For more information, contact us at

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