Free Events!

We are delighted to announce that we’ve been able to resume hosting small group stewardship events in 2021, and appreciate all the community volunteers who have helped sustain the garden all year long!

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.

We welcome families, individuals, small community and corporate groups to contact us at magnusonchildrensgarden@gmail.com to sign up for any of the following dates. 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 magnusonchildrensgarden@gmail.com


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